André Meyer:

- born october 13,1920 in Abo (now Turku) Finland (PS: there should be an '°' above the "o", but I don't know how to put it there)
- died januari 10, 1965 in Libreville, Gabon
- his publications were essentially devoted to igneous rocks from Kivu, in particular to lavaflows of the Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira volcanoes, as well to the rocks forming the syenite-carbonatite complex of the Lueshe
