Paul Heger was born in 1846, two years after Charlotte Brontë left Brussels. He studied biology and was appointed professor of physiology at the Brussels Free University in 1873. Heger later worked with the industrial chemist Ernest Solvay on the creation of a science park in the Leopold Park and was appointed director of the prestigious Solvay Institute in 1895 (the building stands in the Leopold Park close to the European Parliament and is now occupied by a European think tank). In 1913, Paul Heger presented the British Library with four letters sent by Charlotte Brontë to Constantin Heger in 1843-45. Paul Heger died in 1925 in a car accident. A street in the university quarter is named in his honour.
