Du Bois (JOHN) (1764-1842). American prelate; born in Paris, died in New York. Was ordained priest in 1787, and received his appointment of assistant at the great Church of St. Sulpice, Paris. The Revolution brought him to America, and he arrived at Norfolk, Virginia, in 1791. At Mount St. Mary's, Maryland, he opened a school, which soon developed into Mount St. Mary's College, of which he was long president. His college was also a theological seminary, where some of the greatest bishops and priests of the country were educated. He was appointed Bishop of New York in 1826, where he found but few churches and priests.
