HASSARD, John Rose Greene, journalist, born in New York city, 4 September, 1836. He was graduated at St. John's college, Fordham, New York, in 1855. From 1857 till 1863 he was assistant editor of the "New American Cyclopaedia." He became editor of the "Catholic World" in 1865, and in 1866 was attached to the staff of the New York "Tribune" as editorial writer. From 1867 till 1883 he also wrote the musical criticisms for that journal, and on the death of George Ripley became its literary critic. In 1878 several hundred telegraphic despatches in cipher, relating to the disputed presidential election of 1876, came into the possession of the "Tribune," and after much curious study were translated by Mr. Hassard and Colonel William M. Grosvenor, of that paper. The publication of these telegrams, showing negotiations with the returning boards of two states to purchase the electoral votes of those states for the Democratic candidate, caused much excitement, and the plot was investigated by a committee of the United States house of representatives. Mr. Hassard has published "Life of Archbishop Hughes" (New York, 1866); "The Ring of the Nibelung" (1877); "Life of Plus IX." (1878); "History of the United States" for schools (1878); and "A Pickwickian Pilgrimage " (Boston, 1881).
