Born Paris, France, 11 March 1901

Died Laval, Mayenne, France, 6 October 1995

Paul Baize pursued a distinguished career in pediatrics while developing an equally distinguished astronomical career as a specialist in binary stars. As an amateur astronomer, Baize made over 24,000 exceptionally accurate binary star measurements using the 30‐cm and the 38‐cm refractors of the Paris Observatory, and calculated nearly 300 orbits based on his observations. His publications included a catalog of binary star orbits (1950), a stellar mass-luminosity relationship (1957), a catalog of red dwarf binary stars
