Baudouin, Louis Marie
Baudouin, Louis Marie a French priest, and founder of an order of nuns called the Ursulines of Jesus, was born Aug. 2, 1765, at Montaign, diocese of Lugon. He finished his studies at the Seminary of the Lazarites at Lucon, and took refuge in Spain during the Revolution. At the renewal of the amnesty accorded to the clergy, he returned to France and devoted himself to the Sables d'Olonne. There, in concert with a pious woman, he resolved to found a society for young women, for the purpose of giving a Christian education to the young, especially those connected with the order. This resulted in the founding of the above-mentioned society. He died at Chavanges, Feb. 12, 1835. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
