Dear Genners,

Who Was Dr. H Peretz, President of the Royal Medical Society of Egypt in the 1930s-1940s?
Except for his surname and initial I do not know anything else except for the fact that he was the President of the Egyptian Royal Medical Society. Any details?

I presume that he was not alone in the world. Any relatives somewhere?

Here is his entry from the 1941 Egyptian Directory.
Société Royale de Médecine d'Egypte, 13
r. Sultan-Hussein, Tel 42504.: Prés.: Dr. H. Peretz

Hi Jacob,

Dr. Peretz' first name was Henri.

A Google search found:

"le docteur Henri Peretz, secrétaire général de la Société royale de médecine d'Egypte, et Mme H. Peretz le professeur L. de Carvalho, de la Faculté de médecine de Lisbonne"


1,. rue  Cheikh  Rihane,  Le  Caire. 
Secretaire : Dr.  H.  Peretz  (14,  rue  Saraya  El~ 
Kobra,  Garden-City) 
PERETZ,  Dr.  HENRI,  oculiste,  & Mme, 

14,  rue  Saraya-eLKobra,  Garden-City,  B 
42166,  Caire.  Clubs:  C F.,  G.S.C.  gH§g 
If you search (in quotes)  "Société Royale de Médecine d'Egypte" at The National Library of Israel newspaper collections you will find one 1941 article in French that mentions Dr. Peretz.

My French is very old and rusty, so I don't know if the article will give you any further clues in your search,

Best regards,
