RADIGUET, Maximilien Rene (rah-de-gay), French explorer, born in Landerneau, Finisterre, 17 February, 1816. After studying in the School of the fine arts at Paris, he became in 1838 secretary to Admiral Charles Baudin and Count de Las Casas, who had been sent to negotiate with the government of Hayti for the payment of an indemnity to the descendants of the French citizens that had been murdered during the troubles of 1798-1803. He was influential in bringing the negotiations to a speedy conclusion, preventing the impatient admiral several times from bombarding Cape Haytien. From 1841 till 1845 he was in South America and the Marquesas islands, as secretary to Admiral Du Petit-Thouars, and he has since devoted himself to literary labors. Among other works, he has published "Souvenirs de l'Amerique Espagnole : Chili, Perou, Bresil" (Paris, 1856; revised ed., 1874).
