Wikipedia: Michel-Gabriel Paccard (born 1757 in Chamonix, died 1827 ibid) was a Savoyard physician and alpinist. After studying medicine in Turin, which at that time was the capital of the kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont, he worked as a doctor in Chamonix. His passion for botany and minerals brought him together with Horace-Bénédict de Saussure, who initiated the race for the first ascent of Mont Blanc. Paccard launched 1783 together with Marc Theodore Bourrit a first, unsuccessful ascent attempt. 1784 followed several attempts with Pierre Balmat. On August 8, 1786, he finally reached with Jacques Balmat the summit of Mont Blanc and thus the highest point of the Alps. A statue in Chamonix reminds of Paccard.
