French obstetrician who was involved in all facets of obstetrics, being especially known for his work involving eclampsia, twin pregnancies and craniotomy. An obstetrical implement known as a pince de Bar (an umbilical cord clamp) is named after him.

In 1887 he obtained his agrégation for obstetrics at the faculty of medicine, and successively worked at the hospitals Tenon, Saint-Louis and Saint-Antoine. In 1907 he succeeded Pierre-Constant Budin as professor of obstetrics to the medical faculty.

He was a co-founder of the Société d'obstétrique de Paris. In 1926 he was named president of the Académie de Médecine.
