S

S-----. In One of Ours, Claude Wheeler's Company B travels to a French training camp identified only as "S-----." The actual place remains unknown. N:OnO V, 5

S-----, ARCHBISHOP. Jean Baptiste Salpointe, the second Archbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico, was born at St. Maurice, Puy-de-Dô me, France, in 1825 and died at Tucson, Arizona, in 1898. As Willa Cather states in Death Comes for the Archbishop, Salpointe studied theology at the Seminary of Montferrand (q.v.), the same seminary as his predecessor, Father Jean Baptiste Lamy (q.v.), the prototype of Father Latour. Ordained on December 20, 1851, Salpointe came to the United States as a missionary for Lamy, who was Archbishop of Santa Fe, in 1859. Salpointe administered the Arizona missions alone until Arizona became a vicarate in 1868. He was then named first vicar apostolic and consecrated bishop of Doryla "in partibus" on June 20, 1869. Eventually he was made coadjutor to Bishop Lamy, and in 1884 was named archbishop to succeed Lamy, who resigned in 1885. Salpointe himself resigned January 7, 1894, and became titular Archbishop of Tomit, residing at Tucson, Arizona, until his death. N: DC IX1-2, 4, 8

SABINO. The brother of Tranquilino, he and his son transport Father Vaillant and his equipment to Colorado in Death Comes for the Archbishop. N: DC VIII, 2-3

SADA. The old Mexican bondwoman in Death Comes for the Archbishop who maintains her religious faith as she endures twenty years of cruel slavery and isolation from formal worship. It is in experiencing her faith one cold December night that Archbishop Jean Latour is restored to a sense of gratitude and purpose in his religious work. N: DC VII, 2

SADELACK, ANTONE. The heartless, ambitious son of Peter Sadelack in Willa Cather 's first published story, "Peter." He was probably suggested by Anton Sadilek (see SHIMERDA, AMBROSCH). S:Pe

SADELACK, MRS. The wife of Peter and mother of Antone in "Peter." Her son makes her work as if she were an animal. A Peter Sadelack and his wife are also mentioned in "The Dance at Chevalier's," and this Mrs. Sadelack is described as Peter's "slatternly" wife. For a possible prototype, see SHIMERDA, MRS.
