Canadian statesman. A native of Saint-André-de-Kamouraska (Québec), he studied at the College of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière. He worked as merchant in the town of Kamouraska. In the by-election of March 19, 1877, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly as the Liberal representative for the district of Kamouraska. This election was cancelled by the Superior Court on March 4, 1878. He decided then to switch for Ottawa and in 1878, he was elected as the Liberal representative to the House of Commons for the district of Kamouraska. He did not represent himself in 1882. From 1882 to 1887, he lived in the United States. Upon his return, beginning on September 17, 1887, he served as Archivist for the Secretariat of the Province of Québec, a post he kept until June 25, 1909, date of his nomination as Deputy Secretary of the Province. In 1869, he had joined the Pontifical zouaves in Rome. He passed away in the city of Québec.  (bio by: Guy Gagnon)
