Charles Désiré, ° 10.8.1856; + April 1935. Doctor of medicine. At his wedding in Liège on 15.10.1891, recorded as a doctor domiciled in Liège and previously in Liège - Ougrée. Took paleo-anatomical photographs with Guillaume Oury, published in "Archives de biologie", 1887. President of the Liège section of the ABP in 1890-1891. A public slide show organised by the Liège section on 17.4.1896 included "a fine collection of sunny views, brought back by Dr Mathien from a trip to Tunisia and Algeria" (La Meuse, 18.4.1896). Mathien accompanied the Egyptologist Jean Capart (1877 - 1947) on two expeditions in 1905 -1906 and 1907, both resulting in views of the necropolis at Saqqarah. Under the direction of Capart, Mathien made 18 exposures on plates 18 x 24 cm on 3 and 5.1.1906 and a further set between 26.3 and 3.4.1907. Some of these studies were later "improved" prior to publication by François Verstraeten (see that name).
