Cardinal Anton Hubert Fischer
Birth: May 30, 1840
Death: Jul. 30, 1912

Roman Catholic Cardinal. Born in Julich, he studied in Cologne, and at the University of Bonn and the Academy of Munster. He was ordained priest on September 2, 1863. For twenty-five years he taught religion at the Gymnasium in Essen. He was preconized titular Bishop of Juliopolis, on February 14, 1889, and was thenceforth associated in the administration of the Diocese of Cologne as assistant to the auxiliary Bishop Baudri, then very old. When Baudri died (June 29, 1893), he succeeded him. In 1901 the See of Cologne became vacant by the death of Mgr. Theophilus Simar, and on November 26, 1902, Bishop Fischer was appointed archbishop. On June 23 1903, Pius X made him a cardinal. During the ten years of his episcopate, Cardinal Fischer was a most devoted protector of the religious orders, and the confidence placed in him by the Prussian Government was singularly beneficial to the spread of Catholic life. On several occasions during religious or national celebrations he spoke of Emperor William II in very warm terms, which caused much comment. Greatly attached to the interests of workingmen, at the Congress of Liege in 1890 he called for the intervention of the State in matters of labour legislation. He was likewise the defender with the Holy See of Christian interdenominational syndicates, whose headquarters were at München-Gladbach, and he exerted himself to counterbalance the influence brought to bear in behalf of purely sectarian syndicates by the Catholics of Berlin and his colleagues, the Bishop of Trier, and the Cardinal-Bishop of Breslau. (bio by: Guy Gagnon)
