"The son of a minister, Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz was born on May 28, 1807 in the village of Montier, in the French-speaking part of Switzerland"

Andre's father's name is Emanuel Agassian. He is an ethnic Armenian who lived in Iran and boxed for Iran in the Olympics in the early 50s. Armenians were an ethnic minority in Iran who were treated rather badly and Mr. Agassian defected while in America.

I doubt this Agassiz person is any relation, but you never know. He could also be of Armenian decent. :)

You know, in canada, there is this town named Agassiz. Hey! You don't suppose that it's called Agassiz because several of Andre's relations reside there, do ya! oh wait, no.
