Fr. Joseph Fruzzini, a Jesuit, was a native of Brig, Switzerland; born on April 13, 1816. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1833 and was ordained in 1847. The following year saw the expulsion of the Jesuits from Switzerland, so Fr. Fruzzini came to America. He served at Williamsville, New York, until 1853, when he returned to Europe for sixteen years. Fr. Fruzzini came back to the United States in 1869. He died at Canisius College, in Buffalo, New York, on May 21, 1880.
