Franciscan missionary, administrator, and historian on the Baja California peninsula and in Alta California. Father Palou made significant contributions to the Alta California and Baja California mission systems. Along with his mentor, Junipero Serra, Palou worked to build numerous missions throughout Alta and Baja California, many structures of which still stand today. A member of the Franciscan Order, Palou eventually became the acting "Presidente" of the missions in Baja California, and then eventually of missions of Alta California as well. Palou's work in the Spanish mission system spans from his early twenties to his death at the age of 66 in 1789.
