A Frenchman, Paul Couteau knew he wanted to be an astronomer by age 11. In 1949, he earned his PhD from the Astrophysical Institute of Paris (thesis on white dwarfs), and began his observing career professionally at Nice (1951–1967), making some 12,000 measurements. tex December 14, 2006 Double Stars Galore! 6:43 25 time at Yerkes Observatory (5 months in 1961).
