Radec, Professor. Professor Radec was created by the French author Roland Dorgelès and appeared in Si c’ètait vrai? (1934).

The renowned Professor Radec isolates a bacillus which can erase all malevolence from a person’s personality. The Doctor then inoculates several million of his countrymen with this bacillus, but enforced virtue becomes so boring that those inoculated are delighted when they have the opportunity to neutralize the bacillus and engage in mischief, devilishness, and even murder.
