Bakonyi, Samuel

Hungarian deputy and publicist; born in Debreczin July 22, 1862. After graduating in law at the University of Budapest, he settled in his native town, where he soon became prominent in the public affairs of the city and the Jewish congregation, through his journalistic activity and his exceptional oratorical powers and wide juristic knowledge. He became one of the leaders of the liberal ecclesiastical reform movement, which began in Debreczin, called "the Calvinistic Rome", with the result that, although a Jew and dwelling in a Protestant town, he was elected in 1901 to the Parliament on the platform of the liberal Kossuth party. As an expert criminal lawyer he holds an appointment upon the law committee of the Hungarian Parliament.
