Statistician, b. in Dublin, 29 September, 1829; d. there 13 Dec., 1900. He was educated at the Irish College, Rome. Going to Buenos Aires he established there in 1861 the "Standard", the first paper in English published in South America. In 1869 he brought out "The Handbook of the River Plate", the first English book printed in Argentina. This was followed by his "Progress of the World" (1880); "Balance Sheet of the World, 1873-1880" (1881); "Dictionary of Statistics" (1883), a standard work of reference, few modern compilations having been more extensively used; "History of Prices since 1850" (1885). In 1896 he travelled extensively in Europe collecting material for the Committee of the English Parliament reporting on a proposed department of agriculture for Ireland. The pope decorated him in recognition of his literary work, in which his wife, Marion McMurrough Mulhall, who has also written extensively, was his active and practical assistant.
