The Eponym Dictionary of Birds claims:

Édouard A. Lebrun (1852-1904) was a french taxidermist who collected in Argentinia (1882)

The old key:

Édouard A. Lebrun (1852-1904) French taxidermist, collector in Argentina 1882 (Sicalis).

And the Bulletin du Muséum national d'histoire naturelle here

LEBRUN (Édouard-Adolphe). Ancien préparateur au Muséum. Voyageur naturaliste: Patagonie (Expédition du Volage), à Saint Calais (Sarthe) ... 22 nov . 1904

Here in 1877

Muséum - M. Lebrun (Edouard-Adolphe), employé temporaire au laboratoire de la chaire de malacologie du Muséum d'histoire naturelle, est nommé préparateur de ladite chaire, en remplacement de M. Potteau, décedé.

I did not find the record in Archive en ligne as it stops 1902 here.

And if I read here ...

Dans sa séance du 22 novembre 1904, l'Assemblée des Professeurs a décerné le titre de Correspondant du Muséum à M. Lebrun (Edouard-Adolphe), ancien Préparateur de Malacologie.

... I even doubt that he has died in 1904.
