KONSCHAK, Count Ferdinand, clergyman, born in Warasdin, Croatia, 2 December, 1703; died in California in 1760. He entered the Jesuit order, 22 October, 1719, and, after teaching in Buda, set out as a missionary for Mexico, where he labored for several years. He was at first superior of the mission of St. Ignatius in California, and afterward visitor of all the Jesuit missions. His works that he published after his arrival in Mexico are " Vida y muerte del P. Antonio Tempis, Jesuita Misionero de Californias " (Mexico, 1748); "Apostelicos Afanes de la Compania de Jesus, etc." (Barcelona, 1754; Paris, 1767); and "Historia de las Misiones de Californias, nombradas: los Dolores del Notre, y la Nagdalena," which remained in manuscript, but supplied Venegas (q. v.) with nearly all the materials for his history of California. A narrative of Konschak's addressed to the confessor of the viceroy of Naples, dated Vera Cruz, 24 April, 1731, is in the 37th volume of the " Weltbote " (Augsburg, 1728-'50).
