Pedro Francisco Bonó y Mejía (October 18, 1828 – September 13, 1906) was a Dominican politician, sociologist and intellectual. He is credited with being the first Dominican sociologist.

Bonó was born in 1828, to Joseph Bonó (a ranchman and trader of Italian origin), and Inés Mejía y Port. His maternal grandmother, Doña Eugénie Port, a native of Brittany (North-Western France), whom had large plantations and fortune in the Saint-Domingue until the outbreak of the Haitian Revolution, taught him the French language and fashioned him intellectually.[1]
