BRONDEL, John B., R. C. bishop, born in Bruges, Belgium, in 1842. He studied in the American College of the University of Louvain, and was ordained at Mechlin in 1864. In 1866 he volunteered for the American mission, went to Washington territory, and in 1867 was appointed rector of Heilacoom. He was transferred to Walla Walla in 1877, but returned to Heilacoom in 1878. He was consecrated bishop of Vancouver island in 1879, appointed administrator of the vicariate apostolic of Montana in 1883, and in 1884 consecrated bishop of Helena in the same territory. He has been very successful in civilizing the Indians of his diocese, and his popularity among the tribes has often enabled him to render important services to the United States government.
