Margaret Adkins Collection (1964-1986, n.d.)

Creator Sketch

This collection contains a few items related to Margaret Adkins. Adkins was a faculty member of the elementary school at Northwestern State University of Louisiana in Natchitoches, Louisiana. She was a member of Sigma Alpha Iota. Adkins died in the mid-1990s.

Scope and Content

The materials give a small glimpse into the teaching career of Adkins at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. The bulk of the correspondence consists of memorandums for the music faculty regarding procedures and other issues. The instructional materials include notes, sheet music and procedures. Some of these materials were authored by May Beville, another music instructor. As a result, it is uncertain whether Adkins actually utilized these resources herself. The term papers included in the collection are also linked to Beville, as students for her class did them. The minutes document meetings of the music department faculty, of which Adkins was a member, though many times absent. The get-well cards relate the strong feelings of appreciation her students had for her.

Creator Sketch

On May 1, 1936, seven teachers at Louisiana Normal met and established a local chapter of the American Association of University Professors. At that meeting, Mr. A. C. Maddox was elected as the first president of the chapter, and Dr. Sarah L. C. Clapp was named as the chapter secretary.
The chapter at Normal and later at Northwestern State College remained an active chapter until about 1963. However, the records indicate that after 1958, the chapter became almost inactive.
Throughout its quarter century of existence, the AAUP chapter at the Natchitoches institution struggled for viability. The minutes of the chapter show an almost yearly struggle to renew memberships and encourage new faculty members to join. Only during the period immediately following World War II did the chapter flourish, at one time claiming a membership of 75.
Very rarely did the Natchitoches chapter function as the organization was intended to function. The primary aims of the national AAUP are to encourage faculty participation in university government, promotion of academic freedom and tenure, and promotion of higher salaries for university teachers. The Normal and NSC chapter more often served as a kind of social outlet for its members. However, some exceptions should be noted. In 1948-1952, the local AAUP chapter presented a variety of committee reports to the college; from 1956 to 1958, the members worked for the adoption of the five-day week at Northwestern; and the local AAUP also developed as Evaluation of

Instruction From that gained attention at other Colleges and universities. The NSC chapter of AAUP gained the most notoriety in 1958 when it became the only chapter of the organization in the United States to vote to retain the loyalty provisions of the National Defense Education Act. The vote on the issue caused some personal dissension within the chapter and probably contributed to the eventual demise of the group.
Much of the success of the chapter during its twenty-five years can be attributed to the efforts of Dr. Sarah Clapp. Dr. Clapp was the moving force behind the organization of the Normal chapter of AAUP, and she served as an officer of the organization during most of the years of its existence until her retirement in 1958.

Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches Collection

Creator Sketch

Eight women organized the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches in 1940. The first charter was produced in 1943, and bore the original name of the organization, The Association of Natchitoches Women for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches. Charter members included Miss Augusta Nelken, Mrs. Mae Roop, Mrs. Mildred Cunningham, Miss Carmen Breazeale, Mrs. Vernon Cloutier, Mrs. G. F. Thomas, Sr., Mrs. Flora Hooker, Mrs. G. H. Pierson and Mrs. Viloet Winslow. The major purpose of the organization is to promote historic preservation in the city of Natchitoches and Natchitoches Parish.
The idea to form the organization came about after members of a Historic Buildings Survey team from Washington, D.C. visited Natchitoches in 1940. This team consisted of an architect, artist and an historian. They were sent out to document through architectural drawings, the many structures of historical significance still remaining throughout the country. After seeing the Lemee House in Natchitoches, the architect on the survey team became interested in the historic home and began inquiring about the possibility of purchasing it. After this, the founding members of APHN went before the City Commission to try and persuade the city of Natchitoches to purchase the house. The city soon purchased the house and allowed the women to begin raising money for the restoration of the house.
Since it’s beginning, the organization has been instrumental in the ongoing effort to preserve historic structures in the Natchitoches area. Specifically, they were key in securing state and federal grants beginning in the 1970s for the restoration and preservation of many historically significant structures in Natchitoches and the surrounding parish area. These areas include the historic district of downtown Natchitoches, as well as the Cane River Plantation area in rural Natchitoches Parish. The group also holds an annual tour of homes and an annual arts & crafts festival at Melrose Plantation.

Scope & Content Note

The APHN Records contain correspondence, reports, legal documents,, minutes, photographs, scrapbooks, clippings and maps. The bulk of this material deals with the organization’s fundraising activities and historic preservation work. Specifically, there is much documentation on the preservation of Melrose Plantation through the securing of federal grants beginning in the early 1970s. Of particular interest, is the correspondence contained in the Melrose Plantation Series between Elizabeth Mills, a blooming genealogist and Arthur Watson, local attorney and long supporter of Natchitoches history. This correspondence documents the research Mills and her husband Gary completed on the origins of the plantation and the area surrounding it. The Maps & Drawings sub series included in this series include many architectural drawings and surveys of various buildings and land related to Melrose Plantation.
Much of the remaining materials document the organization’s activities concerning the annual arts and crafts show held at Melrose Plantation and the annual tour of homes. The Photographs and Drawings Series contains photographs of many of the historic structures, as well as some activities and meetings. These include both photographs and drawings related to Melrose Plantation. Additionally, there are two scrapbooks that document the organization’s history from 1985-1999 and clippings dating back to the 1950s

Lucile Appleby Collection

The Lucile Appleby collection is comprised of a 190 page scrapbook she compiled during her college years at Silliman College in Clinton, Louisiana, and Louisiana State Normal College in Natchitoches from 1918 through 1922. The scrapbook is title School Girl Days: A Memory Book and was copyrighted in 1910 by the Reilly and Britton Company of Chicago, Illinois. A native of Slaughter, Louisiana, Miss Appleby’s scrapbook includes numerous programs and invitations to recitals, graduations, May Day programs, and so forth. She also included several of her grade reports from both colleges. It appears Miss Appleby led an active social life for her scrapbook contains several invitations to parties, descriptions of parties, hand painted napkins as souvenirs of different functions, etc. Several pages of the scrapbook are devoted to photographs of Miss Appleby and friends taken during her years in college. Of particular interest are several pages in the scrapbook filled with postmarks and return addresses which she apparently clipped from mail she received.

James Aswell Collection

Scope and Content

The collection consists primarily of the manuscripts for his works that include The Midsummer Fires, Young and Hungry Hearted, and There’s One In Every Town. Other manuscripts of three unpublished newspaper articles from 1932-1936; The White Sheep (an unfinished novel based on the life of Huey Long); The Price of Liberty ( a group of stories about the men an women who fought for the principles in the first ten amendments tour constitution). Also included in the collections group of manuscripts are those for eleven short stories.

A great deal of correspondence concerning the publication of his novels and short stories is found in the collection. Correspondence with several representatives of William Morrow & Company as well as the Sydney Sanders Literary Agency are an example of the type found. Discussions of corrections to be made and progress on forth coming works are found through out the correspondence. Included in the collection’s correspondence is fan mail received form all over the United States about his novel Midsummer Fires. Many letters were sent to the author praising his short stories about Natchitoches. Several letters are from individuals requesting help from Aswell with a project they are working on.

The collection also includes a large group of newspaper articles. These concern publicity given his books and short stories as well as his brief political career. Aswell was an unsuccessful candidate in 1940 for the Eight District seat to the United States House of Representatives. He was also a strong supporter of Sam Jones, reform governor elected in 1940.

Of special interest in the collection are letters written to Aswell by outstanding literary figures. These include a letter from F. Scott Fitzgerald (1934), Ernest Hemingway (1929), Witter Bynner (1927), and an undated letter from W. S. Maugham.

A listing of Aswell’s books that were incorporated into the Louisiana Collection was added artificially. It can be found in folder 277.

James Aswell Collection Addition

Material contained in boxes 11 through 17 of the James Aswell Collection was donated by Mrs. Nobie Gibbs and added to the existing collection. Her donation of Aswell material lends itself to emphasize the personal life of the Aswells. A family photograph album, several loose photographs, relics which belonged to Aswell’s step-son Gregory Douglas, and so forth are found in the collection.

There is a great deal of information also about James Aswell, Sr., and the settlement of his estate. The collection contains many pages of correspondence between his wife, Rosalind, and her employers while she worked as a commercial illustrator. Aswell’s interest and participation in Louisiana politics is also well represented in the collection’s material. A large collection of newspaper articles dealing with his father’s death, his work, state politics, and so forth are located in the final box of the collection. Last but not least, the collection holds copies of columns and novelettes written by Aswell, as well as the typed manuscript and galleys for his novel Midsummer Fires.

Over a period of time Bailey befriended Hunter and supported her work by purchasing paintings. She was also responsible for the production of numerous oral histories of Hunter from 1972 through 1989.

Audrey Wagley, Louisiana State

Normal College; daughter of

Mr. & Mrs. A. C. Wagley of Many, LA.

Ann Brittain Collection

Five (5) scrapbooks (12″x14″) documenting the filming of Steel Magnolias in Natchitoches and the surrounding area. These items offer a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of an important event in Natchitoches history.

Thirty-five (35) genealogy charts (35″x 22″) documenting the Prudhomme, Lambre and other related families. These charts are particularly valuable due to the increasing interest in genealogical studies on the Natchitoches area. The particular family lines included in these documents represent some of the key players in the history and development of the area.

Caroline Hammett Brown Collection

Donation of family items by Caroline Brown’s daughters: Normal diplomas, catalog, graduation invitations, and a genealogy book Keeping Up with the Browns and Joneses which has been catalogued.

Sharon Brown Collection

The Jena Choctaw by Sharon Brown: criteria for federal recognition of an Indian group; evidence from several sources; family migrations; sources for further research.

Joan Brunson, M.D. Collection

Scope and Content

This collection contains a few receipts and correspondence related to J. N. Thompson (Montgomery, Alabama) and the settling of his estate. Much of the receipts document Thompson’s lifetime transactions, while the correspondence largely deals with the settling of his estate upon his death to Berta Maxwell of Pollock, Louisiana. Also included is a letter from Sarah McDougal to her sister and one to Thompson from his sister, Eula Sullivan in Dayton, Alabama.

Janice Murphy Bryson Collection

Mrs. Bryson donated to the Archives Division two objects which she made as a student in a Normal Art Class, 1921-1922. She graduated in 1922.

1. Table scarf worked in Newcombe-style embroidery; the design shows the Normal entrance, the only entrance at the time she was a student.

2. Pine needle basket containing a button collection.

Coralie Buard-Cloutier Collection

Biographical Sketch

The Buard-Cloutier Collection contains a few personal items that belonged to Coralie Buard or concern her family. Miss Buard was the composer of Oak Hill March; she was later Mrs. Cloutier, and was the grandmother of the donor of the collection, Elma Lambre Gueno. There are several undated items, an album from 1858 with verses written throughout the war years, an undated prayer book, and Xerox copies of an 1862 Confederate pay receipt.

George S. Buckner Collection

Louise Wasson’s album, kept when she was a State Normal student, 1919 to 1922, was given to NSU by George S. Buckner. Though in deteriorated condition, the album’s ninety page hold snapshots, cartoons, letters, invitations, clippings, bridge tallies, a scholarship award, a valedictory address, and other memorabilia.

Lela V. Bullock Collection

Much of the Bullock collection has not been processed. The processed materials consist of slides documenting various nature scenes, family reunions and European trips. It appears that most of these slides concern the family of Neil Bullock. He was born in 1916, near Selma, Louisiana. Bullock attended Louisiana State University, and later moved to Franklinton, Louisiana. He was employed as a soil conversationalist.

Mabel Bullock Collection

Scope and Content

The bulk of the materials include correspondence to and from Mrs. C. J. (Georgia) McGinty from the Louisiana towns of Keachie, Pineville and Alpha. These are dated between 1879 and 1889. There is also one photograph of a young girl with the inscription ‚ÄúFrom Susie to Nettie‚Äù on the back. Other items include a $10 note dated 1834, a receipt from Farmer’s Gin in Colfax, Louisiana and a certificate given to Maurice A. Phillips in 1927 by Louisiana State University.

Jeroline Perry Bumgardner Collection

Fifty-nine photocopy pages contain the early minutes of the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church of Bienville Parish. The minutes start with the adoption of a constitution and the organization of the church. There-after, they tell of church business and contain names of members.
This church was located three miles east of Ringgold on the Castor Road.

Burr-Wilkinson Conspiracy

This item is a 38-page printed booklet dated 1808 containing copies of correspondence and other items relating to the Burr-Wilkinson conspiracy. The questions were directed to Senator John Smith of Ohio, who was accused of complicity by the U. S. Senate, and the replies by Smith did not clear him, and led to his resignation from the Senate.

This collection consists of items donated by the Historic New Orleans Collection and consists of five rolls of negative microfilm and the Provisional Guide To The Cane River Collection by the HNOC dated 1982, call number: F377 N4 P76 1982 LACOLL.

The guide lists the documents contained on the microfilm reels which are also located in the HNOC and originally donated to them by Mr. Robert DeBlieux. Documents pertain primarily to the Cane River Region in Natchitoches Parish and span the years of 1817 – 1871. Some documents are not dated.

Cane River Historic Documents Project Collection

Scope and Content

The purpose of this document is to explain the contents of the three CDs of digital images presented to various organizations in Natchitoches as part of the Cane River Historic Documents Project. The first CD contains Succession Book 1, the second Succession Book 2 and the third four successions from a later date. Succession Books 1 and 2 are distinctive because they are the first successions to be recorded separately from the more general business of the notaire. They cover the period 1813 ‚Äì 1820. Previously, successions were recorded in the Conveyance Books. Perhaps because of the increasing amount of paperwork involved as successions became larger, and that the books had to leave the notaire’s offices to record the property, by the 1810s successions were being recorded separately. The supporting documentation for some successions has also been preserved, starting a few years later, and this has recently been encapsulated by the Clerk of Court’s Office. From the thousands of examples that survived from the nineteenth century, I selected four to digitally photograph. These were ones with the closest links to the Cane River Historic Documents Project; Augustin Metoyer (1859), Dominique Metoyer (1840), Jean Baptiste Louis Metoyer (1837) and Marianne Doclas (c1827).

The images were taken over a period of three days at the end of April 2004. The results are variable, particularly near the beginning of Succession book 1, but for the most part very successful. This has proved to be a rapid technique for recording images, which were taken with a hand-held camera and saved as medium quality jpegs. More time was taken in the manipulation of the images, which was done in Photoshop, and mainly involved cropping, ‚Äòskewing’ the images so they appeared to be shot straight on, and altering the levels and contrast. Legibility was my central concern rather than keeping the image looking like the original, which explains the variety of color tones in some. Some of them appear slightly out of focus ‚Äì while in some cases they probably are, this is more often an effect of the ink bleeding into the paper. The succession books and the selections from later successions were processed in slightly different ways, with the succession books being more manipulated. Whilst all of these documents are encapsulated, the later succession papers are encapsulated in a shinier plastic that is more reflective than that used to cover the leaves of the succession books, which does affect the quality of the images.

While I have made every attempt to make sure that the pages remain in the order that they were taken, the peculiarities of copying files means that they will sometimes reorganize themselves alphabetically, though to a certain extent this is controlled by their organization into folders. However, the file names are straightforward and follow the page numbers of the volumes themselves, with the index to the volume labeled in Roman numerals, and the rest of the volume in numbers from 1. There may appear to be pages missing, or extra pages added – these have been checked and are the result of mistakes made by the clerk who wrote the document mislabeling pages. Ideally, I would have created a Word index to use with the digital images so users could go directly to the pages they are interested in, however, lack of time forbade me from this undertaking. The four selected successions are numbered simply in the order they appear in the bound volumes, as they do not have page numbers.

This project represents the first stage in the digitization of the important collections held at the Clerk of Courts Office. Hopefully these electronic documents will demonstrate how digitizing simultaneously addresses issues of access and preservation, both key concerns of the Cane River National Heritage Area.

Many thanks must go to the Cane River National Heritage Area for funding the Cane River Historic Documents Project. For this section of the project thanks must go to the Clerk of Court Louis Bernard for his support and especially to Linda Cockrell for her help and advice. Fiona J. L. Handley, June 2004

Chamber of Commerce Collection

Scope and Content

The collection contains photographs that were used by The Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce to promote Natchitoches, Louisiana and surrounding Natchitoches Parish. The photographs date from the1920s to the1970s. The images document industry, prominent structures and everyday life in the region. Many of the documented structures are no longer standing. Specifically, one can find documentation of churches, stores, bridges, rural scenes, leisure sports, group shots of city officials, construction of the LODA (Louisiana Outdoor Drama Association) amphitheater, Kisatchie Forest, Louisiana State Normal College, aerial views of the city, and aerial views of flooded rural areas.
Unfortunately, a significant amount of the images are undated, unidentified and not credited. It is assumed that freelancing local photographers took the majority of the photographs. A few of the images are credited. These include John C. Guillet Studios, Duncan Studios and Kerr’s Studios, all of Natchitoches.
Included within the additions and scrapbooks are annual reports, minutes and other similar materials related to the Chamber’s everyday function. Many of these records concern The Natchitoches Tourist Commission, and deal with grants received to help increase tourism.

Scope and Content

This collection contains manuscript and printed material among which includes correspondence, legal documents, surveys and newspaper clippings. The items are arranged chronologically. Much of the material concerns the Buard and Cloutier families of Natchitoches Parish. Interest centers on land, slaves, cotton, and family members. The earliest document, dated May 1, 1725, shows the origin of the Buard family in the Swiss village of Pampigny, north of Lake Geneva. A short 1864 diary written by Fulbert Cloutier can also be found in the microfilm collection. Several other rolls of microfilm exist that are not presently processed.

Also included are copies of land plats for Natchitoches and its environs including the Campti and Cane River areas. Most are signed by Pierre Joseph Maës, aPDnd are dated 1793-1801. These were obtained from the Register of the State Land Office in 1963. After being accessioned, these plats were moved to the general map collection. However, a listing of the plats can be found in the Cloutier collection.

NOTE: This finding aid of the P.E.Cloutier Collection was adapted from a calendar originally published in 1966 by Katherine Bridges. At the time, Bridges was Louisiana Librarian in the Louisiana Room, Russell Library at Northwestern State College of Louisiana. Copies of the original calendar are still available for viewing in the Cammi G. Henry Research Center.

B.A. Cohen Collection

(RESTRICTED)

Biographical Sketch

Barbara Anne (B.A.) Cohen was born in Alexandria, Louisiana in 1947 to Hyman Charles Cohen and Virginia May (Brinkley) Cohen. She was raised on the family farm, Lakeview Plantation, south of the city of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Cohen attended St. Mary’s Academy and Natchitoches High School. She received her undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in 1971, and her graduate degree in Fine Arts from Northwestern State University of Louisiana in Natchitoches in 1976. Cohen’s thesis is entitled A Photographic Study of the Cane River Lake Area in a Commercial Art Application of the Medium. (Photos here)

In 1971, Cohen began free-lance photography work in Baton Rouge, and was employed as studio manager and Secretary-Treasurer for Deep South Recording Studios, Inc. She ended her employment in Baton Rouge in 1973, and then returned to Natchitoches. Cohen was employed as full time staff photographer for Alexandria Daily Town Talk newspaper during 1974. While obtaining her master’s degree, Cohen continued practicing her photography. She performed free-lance work for local businesses and received a grant to document on film, the vanishing crafts and skills in Northwest Louisiana.

Cohen began fulltime work in commercial photography after opening a studio near Natchitoches in 1977. That same year she was appointed to a three-year term on the Natchitoches Parish Tourist Commission. The following year, Cohen was appointed as chairman of the Committee for Tourism and Cultural Preservation by the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce. Cohen also taught photography on a part time basis at NSU.

Scope and Content

The Cohen Collection is divided into the two subgroups of B.A. Cohen and Cohen Family. The bulk of the materials include correspondence, photographic images, legal documents and printed materials. The first subgroup largely documents B.A. Cohen’s free-lance photography as a hobby and commercial venture. The majority of the images were taken in and around the Natchitoches Parish area. Also included are materials related to her interest and employment in the Louisiana music industry during the 1970s and 1980s.

The second subgroup documents much of the life of the Cohen family during the twentieth century. The bulk of these materials focus on Dorothy Cohen (B.A. Cohen’s aunt). Dorothy Cohen was a teacher and also worked much of her life promoting Melrose Plantation and other aspects of Natchitoches Parish culture. Small segments of other Cohen family members are represented. Included among these are Hyman Charles Cohen and Virginia May Brinkley Cohen (B.A. Cohen’s father and mother), George and Carrie Brinkley (B.A. Cohen’s maternal grandparents), Morris Cohen (B.A.Cohen’s uncle) and Emma (Na-Nan) Perrier (believed to be B.A. Cohen’s great-great aunt).

For a more detailed description of these materials, see the series description.

Concentrating on vanishing skills of the Cane River area, the B. A. Cohen collection contains four 1977 tape cassette interviews with craftsmen, plus black/white contact prints of each craftsman at his work. Crafts include making fishnet, weaving textiles, making split white oak baskets, and making file.
There are also two folders of glossy black/white prints of buildings and homes of Natchitoches city and parish, and eight frame pictures of craftsmen at work.

Series Description
B.A. Cohen subgroup

The Photography series contains photographs, slides and negatives. Included in these materials are some of Cohen’s published photography represented in photographs, publications and clippings. Unfortunately, many of the other images in this series are unidentified and undated. Names of those identified have been listed in the inventory. The bulk of the images are of the Natchitoches Parish area and some of Baton Rouge-based musicians in the early 1970s. For more information on Louisiana music, see the Louisiana Music series. Much of the Slide Collection sub-series is also unidentified, while a segment of the Negative File sub-series is identified. However, they have not been listed in the inventory, only indexed alphabetically. From limited examination, it does appear that many of the images in the previously mentioned two sub-series are original, and not copies of prints found in the Photography series.
The Louisiana Music series contains correspondence, printed materials and legal documents regarding Louisiana musicians that B.A. Cohen knew and worked with over the years. As previously mentioned, all images related to these musicians can be found in the Photography series. Music industry personaliPDties found here include Al Ferrier (singer, songwriter), Potliquor (group), Jim Brown (producer), Swampfox (group), Sam Montel (producer), Dale & Grace, John Fred, Billy O’ Con/Contessa, James Hearron (singer, songwriter), Steve Wells (singer, pianist), Katrice LaCour (performer), Black Lake Singers, Keith & Ginger Lane (gospel singers), Bobby Thomas (songwriter), Infinity (Jazz band), Donna Holt (singer), Tim Murphy (guitarist), Harmon Drew Super Group, Jerry Honigman/Romeos, and Becky Hobbs (singer, songwriter and performer). Also included are materials related to the business aspect of Deep South Recording Studios, Inc. in Baton Rouge. Also present is a small collection of recorded music of many of the mentioned artists, a few of which include demo tapes. Also of interest is a Jose Feliciano LP autographed to Cohen.

The Personal series includes correspondence, printed materials and legal documents, as well as a few photographs of B.A. Cohen. The correspondence mainly relates to Cohen’s commercial photography, offering particular details of the usage of her Natchitoches-themed photographs in various publications. Of particular interest are letters from Francois Mignon, Irma Sompayrac Willard and James Register, as well as cards from Dolly Parton and Jose Feliciano. The land records document Cohen’s efforts to restore the train depot in Natchez, Louisiana. (unsuccessful?) The printed materials contain a copy of Cohen’s thesis and other materials which offer more details on here photography career.

*Note: The first accession of the Cohen Collection located at 1-B-3 contains taped oral histories and photographs of craftspeople at work in Natchitoches Parish. Crafts included fishnet making, textile weaving, split white oak basketry and file grinding.

Cohen Family subgroup

The Correspondence series contains letters to various Cohen family members. Those of particular interest include letters sent by Morris Cohen to his parents while serving in the Navy during World War II, letters from Magnolia Plantation and letters from local catholic churches and national catholic organizations. Also of interest is correspondence and photos from New Orleans by Sister Mary Guadalupe Metoyer. Metoyer claims in the letter that her grandfather was born in The Yucca House on Melrose Plantation. Much of the later correspondence documents Dorothy Cohen’s tour work at Melrose Plantation.
The bulk of the Legal Documents series consists of deeds and other land-related documents regarding Brinkley family property and estates in Bath County, Virginia. Much also exists on the sale of Lakeview Plantation, the Cohen family farm in Natchitoches Parish, in 1976.

The Printed Materials series contains clippings of family members and a small genealogy chart. Also of note in the general printed materials are several catholic prayer cards, many of which identify priests in regard to anniversaries of service and deaths.

Included in the Photographs series are photographs that were stored in Emma Perrier’s house in Cloutierville, Louisiana. To date, it is not known if the subjects of these photos are related to the Cohen family. All of the photos are from circa 1902-1912 and undated. Many of these photos are not identified, and are indexed alphabetically. Some of the locations in the photos include New Orleans (Mardi Gras, ship docks), 1907 Jamestown Exposition, Mineral Wells, Texas, Gladewater, Texas, Marshall, Texas, Bray Hotel in Gladewater, Texas, North Carolina (taken from train), Memphis, Natchitoches Parish (piney woods), Rapides Parish (bridge), Covington, Louisiana, Hendrix Dry Goods Store and The1904 World’s Fair at St. Louis.

Among the people in the photos are Lucille Bell Rogers, Marcia Phillips, Ada Hendricks, Hazel Ponder, Bess Jeter, Madene (?) Lambert, Georgia Austin, Ada Bell Peirnal (?), Lizzie Mae Rogers, Artamese Brown, Ida Hendrix, Hazel Ponder, Blanche Bray, Austin Bray, Maria Phillips, Fay Knox, Ollie Shepperd, C. Perrier, Bert Bray, Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Love, Harry and Leo Masson (New Orleans), Virginia Tapp (?)

Rachal (Cloutierville), James Guillot (Cloutierville), Mrs. B.W. Woods with Clayton Bray, Lucille Victory (?) and Thornton Bert.
The Oversized Materials series contains artifacts, textiles, scrapbooks and ledgers. Included in the artifacts are Lakeview Plantation cash store tokens, an item owned by George Brinkley during World War I and an original Clementine Hunter “25 Cents to Look” sign. The scrapbooks include a scrapbook of twentieth century greeting cards sent to Dorothy Cohen, and Emma Perrier’s autograph book with a few signatures of Cloutierville residents from 1886 and 1887. The ledgers are store ledgers from the Lakeview Plantation Store. The early ledger contains references to ancestor and blacksmith, Casimir Perrier, who had claimed his wedding had been witnessed by Oscar Chopin, husband of writer Kate Chopin. This particular ledger book was given to B.A. Cohen by George Kirkland. The yearbooks and reunion books are of Natchitoches High School. Some were owned by Dorothy Cohen, and some by Mary S. Robson and are inscribed. Cohen and Robson taught at the high school. Included in OS Folder is a 1976 survey of Lakeview Plantation and a 1999 St. Augustine Church restoration plan.

Sterling Cook Collection

Biographical Sketch

Sterling Cook was fascinated with Melrose Plantation and the Cane River area from the time it was first mentioned to him. While attending school in Denton, Texas between 1937 and 1940, he was made aware of the area by two of his art teachers. He first visited Melrose Plantation in 1940, with a cousin from Bossier Parish. In 1957 Cook wrote Francois Mignon asking permission to visit him at Melrose. It was during this same year that the two first met. They remained friends and corresponded throughout the years until Mignon’s death in 1981.

Cook was born in Pima, Texas, and grew up in several Southern states. In 1954, he moved to Oxford, Ohio and pursued a master’s degree in fine arts from Miami University. After receiving the degree in 1957, Cook took over as librarian for the university’s art and architecture department. In 1972, he was coordinator of the university’s art gallery, and by 1976 became the curator of the Miami University Art Museum. Though Cook was interested in and knowledgeable about all types of art, his favorite was folk art. Among his most successful exhibits was one featuring Louisiana-based folk artists, which he completed in 1981. After Cook retired in 1986, he concentrated on renovating his Oxford home and spending time in his yard and with his pets. He died July 19, 2002 at Berkeley Square in Hamilton of pneumonia. He was 85 years old. Cook was a member of the Ohio Folk Arts Society and the Victorian Society.

Scope and Content

The Cook Collection consists of correspondence sent by Francois Mignon to Sterling Cook from 1957 through 1979. Correspondence from the period between 1970 (when Melrose was sold by the Henry Family) and 1977 does not exist. According to a statement by Cook included in the collection, the two men did not correspond to any significant level during this period.

The bulk of the letters consist of Mignon’s discussion of topics that he and Cook had a mutual interest in. These topics included local news on the plantation and artistic endeavors Mignon was involved in. In particular, Mignon often spoke of the development of rural folk artist Clementine Hunter. Hunter, who first came to Melrose Plantation as a cook, had first been encouraged by Mignon to develop her talent. The letters from Mignon to Cook offer a rare insight into Mignon’s feelings toward Hunter, Melrose Plantation and the surrounding area.

THE AZA JAMES AND GRUNDY COOPER COLLECTION

This collection mainly consists of correspondence of Grundy Cooper with his family members, friends and associates dating from the turn of the century to the early forties. It also consists of correspondence between his wife Aza James and her friends, as well as some newspaper clippings, travel brochures, bank memos, receipts and bills from merchants and business houses. In addition to this, there are some artifacts that belong to the Coopers – a leather wallet belonging to Grundy Cooper with his initials in gold, also a riding crop and a pair of riding boots belonging to Aza Cooper. There is also a map of the Grant Parish, dated 1918, and a rifle that belonged to William Calvert James-an ancestor of Aza James Cooper.

Grundy Cooper was born into a family of wealthy landowners and spent most of his life in Rapides Parish. He was a graduate of Tulane University and later, the Harvard Law College. He was closely associated with these and other educational institutions, the Louisiana State Normal College and Louisiana State University & Agricultural & Mechanical College. Grundy Cooper was twice elected to the State Assembly-in 1908 and in 1916. His first marriage to Alice Neal in 1907 lasted till her death in 1923. He was later married to Aza James and predeceased her in 1942.

Aza James was educated in Providence Academy and kept close contact with the nuns all her life. She graduated from Tulane University and was a member of several committees and institutions, e.g., DAR, Louisiana Colonials Incorporated, the Louisiana Historical Society, to name a few. Greatly gifted and talented, Aza Cooper was a regular contributor to the Alexandria Town Talk, in which she had her own column, “Letters from a Dumb Gardener”, which featured every Thursday from June 1956 to May 1959.

After Grundy Cooper’s death in 1942, Aza devoted herself whole- heartedly to various organizations and contributed generously to charities and homes. She also traveled extensively around the world and in the United States.

The manuscripts include those of her articles, short stories, plays, and novels. Correspondence with such figures as Norman Vincent Pearle and Bishop G. Bromely Oxnam concerning her condensation of the Bible, The Book of life, is included in the collection. All Cross correspondence in box one of the collection ranges from 1932 to 1973. The collection contains a copy of Miss Cross’ book The Golden Cocoon, (1924) which launched her successful writing career. Numerous newspaper clippings ranging from 1924 to 1976 of Miss Cross’ works and early success as a young Texan are found in box eleven of the collection. Box two of the collection contains a great deal of research on Louisiana history which Miss Cross used in writing Soldier of Fortune, (1936) about the life of St. Denis. Miss Cross wrote numerous magazine articles about home gardening an related subjects. One of her books entitled Eden On a Country Hill, (1938) is a product of Miss Cross’ interest in this area. The final box of the collection, box thirteen, contains photographs of Miss Cross from her childhood years in Texas to her later years which have been spent in Winnfield, Louisiana.

*Note: The archivist before 1988 decided that material larger than 11 x 14″ would be put in boxes large enough to accommodate them and designated the boxes as “Oversize (or OS) boxes. Also, materials that were in collections – because of lack of money & supplies – were put together in the oversize boxes – thus creating “Oversize (or OS) Miscellaneous boxes.”
