Louis Delorme

Louis Delorme (December 29, 1824 – June 18, 1895) was a Quebec lawyer and political figure. He represented St. Hyacinthe in the Canadian House of Commons as a Liberal member from 1870 to 1878.[1]

He was born in Montreal in 1824[1], the son of Pierre Delorme and Elizabeth Burke[2], and was educated at Saint Sulpice College and the College of St. Hyacinthe. He studied law and was called to the bar in 1847. Delorme was first elected to the federal parliament in an 1870 by-election held after the death of Alexandre-Édouard Kierzkowski. He was mayor of St. Hyacinthe and warden for the county of St. Hyacinthe.[3] Delorme also served as director for the Bank of St. Hyacinthe. He was named clerk for the Legislative Assembly of Quebec on June 1 1879.[2]
