Paris
Société Linnéenne de Paris (Linnean Society of Paris)
[This Society was founded in 1866 by Ernest-Henri Baillon. Its last publication was dated 30 November, 1899; it appears to have stopped functioning early in the 20th century (p.156 of Aymonin (1974)). Its founders evidently made no reference to a society of the same name, Société Linnéenne de Paris (which had been founded in 1788, gone dormant around 1790, revived from 1820 to about 1833), so it was probably not intended as a resurrection of the latter (p.155 of Aymonin (1974)).]

In 1923 this latter name was changed to the Ärzteverein der Deutschen und Italienischen Schweiz and in 1931, after the Ordine dei Medici del Cantone Ticino left this regional group, the name became the Verband Deutschschweizerischer Ärztegesellschaften (VEDAG).
