CHATARD, Francis Silas, R. C. bishop, born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1834. He was graduated at Mount St. Mary's, Emmettsburg, in 1853, and adopted the profession of medicine, but, after finishing his course, he decided to enter the church. With this view he became a student of the Urban College. Rome, in 1857, and at the end of six years won the cap of a doctor of divinity in public theses. He was shortly afterward appointed vice-rector of the American College, and, on the elevation of Dr. McCloskey to the episcopate, became rector. In this place, which he held for ten years, he rendered excellent service not only to the American College, but to the American bishops that visited Rome. His efforts during the vatican council were recognized by Pius IX., who, as a token of his appreciation, presented him with a gold medal of exquisite workmanship. Dr. Chatard visited the United States in 1878, and obtained large sums for the American College. On his return to Rome, he was notified of his appointment to the bishopric of Vincennes. He was consecrated the same year, and took up his residence at Indianapolis. He is the author of several devotional and controversial works.
