DUGGAN, James, R. C. bishop, born in the County Dublin, Ireland, in 1825. He came to the United States when very young, studied for the ministry in St. Louis, was ordained in 1847, and was immediately afterward appointed rector of the ecclesiastical seminary of the diocese. In 1850 he was made assistant pastor of the Cathedral of St. Louis, and in 1854 created vicar general of the diocese and pastor of the Church of the Immaculate Conception. He was consecrated coadjutor archbishop in 1857, with the title of Bishop of Antigone, and was afterward nominated bishop of Chicago, but failing health soon compelled him to travel abroad. His administration had given great dissatisfaction, and several priests complained of it to the court of Rome, on learning which he hastened home and removed those who had accused him. But it soon became evident that his mind was giving way, and in 1869 his symptoms developed into insanity and he was removed to an asylum in Missouri. He has never recovered.
