Emile Boulanger (1867-1939) was a French pharmacist and biologist. These papers comprise portions of a study on the artificial culture of the truffle following various experiments. Boulanger continued his experiments for some years and published numerous reports of his findings, but was later challenged by Louis Matruchot who claimed that they were simple mushrooms and not truffles.
