First Archbishop of San Francisco, born Vich, Spain, 1814; died Valencia, 1888. A Dominican missionary in Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, he was appointed Bishop of Monterey, 1850, and transferred in 1853 to the newly created metropolitan see of San Francisco. When he resigned in 1883, his province had grown from the 21 secularized missions of the Franciscans to a Catholic population of about 300,000. He inaugurated the first efforts for adjustment of the Pious Fund.
