HOSTLOT, Louis, clergyman, born in Brooklyn, New York, 19 November, 1848; died in Rome, Italy, 1 February, 1884. He was graduated at the College of St. Francis Xavier, New York city, in 1868, and went to Rome, where he pursued a course of theology. He was ordained priest in 1873, was appointed vice-rector of the American college of Rome, and afterward became its rector. The college was in debt, and he not only succeeded in paying it, but acquired sufficient funds to enable him to purchase a country house in Palestrina for the use of the students during the summer months. The American college as an educational institution soon began to rank first among the colleges of the Propaganda under his guidance. Dr. Nostlot was made a monsignor of the second class by the pope, and was afterward raised to the rank of domestic prelate of the first grade. Mr. Hostlot used his great influence in Rome for the benefit of such of his countrymen as visited that city. He left some manuscripts which he was about to publish at the time of his death.
