DURANQUET, Hyacinth, Jesuit, born in Clermont, Auvergne, in 1809. He studied theology in the Colleges of the society in France, became a Jesuit in 1836, and in the same year embarked for the United States, landing at New Orleans in 1837. For the next ten years he taught in the College of Grand Coteau. He came to New York in 1847 and taught for the next five years in St. John's College, Fordham. Since 1858 he has been chaplain of the Tombs prison and the institutions on Blackwell's Island, and was the first Roman Catholic missionary appointed to that office. His success in persuading criminals condemned to death to repent has been noteworthy. He has written many articles on missionary life for the French magazines, and has published in the " Messenger of the Sacred Heart" a series of papers embodying his reminiscences of New York prisons. He is now engaged (1877) on a volume of the same character.
