Abstract: One hundred years ago a young Russian scientist, Dimitri Ivanovsky (1864 to 1920), presented a paper before the Academy of Sciences of St. Petersburg in which he stated that "the sap of leaves infected with tobacco mosaic disease retains its infectious properties even after filtration through Chamberland filter candles" (10). This observation suggested a disease agent smaller than any known before and was the first step in a long series of observations and experiments that led to the discovery of viruses.
