BEAUGRAND, Honore, Canadian journalist, born in Lanoraie, county Berthier, province Quebec, 24 March 1848. He was educated at Joliette College, and at the military school, entering the latter in 1865, joined the French force under General Bazaine in Mexico, and, after the unfortunate termination of the attempt to install Maximilian as emperor of that country, returned with the French troops to their own country. After remaining nine months in France he went to New Orleans in 1868 and became a journalist. Subsequently he was connected with the press in St. Louis, Boston, Chicago, Lowell, and Fall River. In 1878 he returned to Canada and founded "La Pattie" in Montreal, in place of "Le National," which had recently been discontinued. He is well known as a magazine and political writer, has been decorated by the academy of France, and in 1885 received the cross of the legion of honor from President Grevy of the French republic. M. Beaugrand has been mayor of Montreal for several years, and became conspicuous by his prohibition of the Orange procession in that city in 1878.
