MENIER, Joseph Henry (main-yay), French missionary, born in Louviers in 1590; died in Fort Royal, Martinique, in 1671. He became a Dominican friar, and went to St. Christopher in 1635 as a missionary, and afterward to Martinique, where he became superior of the missions of his order. He did much to colonize the latter island, built churches and colleges, dug canals, improved lands, and in many ways contributed to its welfare. He made several trips to Europe to promote emigration to Martinique, and was successful also in obtaining supplies of all kinds. He published "Description de l'ile d'Amerique appelde La Martinique" (2 vols., Paris, 1650); " Dictionnaire de la langue Caraibe" (1652) ; "' Grammaire de la langue Caraibe" (1652); and " Voyage aux iles du vent et sons le vent par un missionnaire de l'ordre des freres precheurs" (2 vols., 1659).
