DELAUNE, J., educator, born in Cgtes du Nord, France, in 1812; died in Paris in 1849. He studied theology in the seminary of St. Brieux, and after his ordination was appointed assistant in the cathedral there. In 1839 he resolved to devote himself to the American mission. On his arrival in Indiana he received charge of the missions of St. Patrick's, St. Peter's, and St. Mary's, in Davies County, and in 1842 was appointed pastor of Madison. In the latter town he established the order of the Sisters of Providence, and built an academy for them. He also opened a school for boys. In the summer of 1846 he became president of St. Mary's College, Louisville, Kentucky, which he conducted for two years. His success was so pronounced that he was invited in 1848 to take charge of a similar institution in Rochester, New York, but was compelled to abandon the enterprise by illness, and went to Europe.
