Allouez, Claude Jean
Claude Jean Allouez (klōd zhäN älwā´), 1622–89, French Jesuit missionary in Canada and the American Midwest. After arriving (1658) in Canada he served at posts in the St. Lawrence region until 1665, when he went to Lake Superior and founded the Chequamegon Bay mission (near present-day Ashland, Wis.). A canoe trip around Lake Superior in 1667 supplied material for the well-known Jesuit map of the lake. Later he founded several missions, including that at De Pere, made his headquarters at Green Bay, and spent his last years as missionary to the Illinois and Miami. His accurate and informed reports made the Great Lakes country known.
