Brother Paul Acyndinus

Brother Paul Acyndinus (1882  - 1971)

Family name: Duclau

He was a skilled laborer during the first four decades of Marist Brothers' activity on the campus.  Brother Nilus Donnelly attributes the while concrete wall along Delafield St and Route Nine to him, as well as the wall surrounding the Poughkeepsie cemetery, the stations of the cross in the woods now a path to the Sheahan and Leo Dormitories, and the quartz grotto in the small circle opposite the entrance to Tenney Stadium. Brother Paul was also a key helper to Brother Leo in wiring the property for electricity and installing an intra campus telephone system.
