Abstract
The Austrian scientist Ami Boué (1794 - 1881) was a geologist and a geographer. He was born on March 16th 1794 in Hamburg and a descendant from a Huguenot family from Bergerac (Dordogne). His greatgrandfather Jacques Chapeaurouge moved to Hamburg in 1705 and became owner of a shipping company. His family offered Ami Boué a comfortable childhood and a life as a private scholar. Ami received education in Hamburg and Geneva. Later he studied medicine and natural sciences in Edinburgh, Paris, Berlin and Vienna.
