New Orleans Public Library
New Orleans (La.) Dept. of Law
Correspondence and subject files, 1880-1946

For the most part, this record series was reconstituted from documents removed from the Louisiana Division's Official Vertical File, where they had been arranged partially under the City Attorney's heading and partly, in error, under other departmental and/or subject headings. The City Archives also holds other record series from the city's Law Dept., including correspondence and opinion files, ca. 1875-1946; see the archivist for further information on these records. See also the City Attorney's section in the Guide to the pre-1862 records in the City Archives.
