DOISSIN, Louis, clergyman, born in America in 1721 ; died in Paris, France, 21 September 1753. He was a Jesuit, and became noted at an early age for his skill in Latin poetry. His principal poems are "In Natalibus Burgundiae Lucis Ecloga" (1751) and "Gallim ob restitutam delphino valetudinem" (1752). Both works are found in the collection published by the professors of the College of Louis le Grand. "Sculptura, carmen" (Paris, 1752)was reprinted in 1757, with a French translation attributed to Father Boissin himself. "Sculptura, carmen" (Paris, 1753) was accompanied by a French translation by a brother Jesuit. The two latter poems were published in a volume of the "Poemata didascalia" (Paris, 1813). The publication of the poems on sculpture obtained for Father Boissin a high reputation among European scholars. He was peculiarly happy in rendering with dignity and precision mechanical details for which the Latin language offers only equivalent terms.
