About the Exhibition

The materials in this online exhibition were originally displayed in the LSU Libraries’ Division of Special Collections (Hill Memorial Library) in conjunction with the annual conference of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries, which was held in Baton Rouge June 21-24, 2011. It remained on display through September 2011. Drawn primarily from the Louisiana & Lower Mississippi Valley, Rare Book, and University Archives Collections, the items reflect the library’s strong holdings in Louisiana history and literature.
