Historical Note

The Public Relations Office was one of several units operating within the Office of the Mayor. According to Edward F. Haas, DeLesseps S. Morrison and the Image of Reform,

Morrison also believed that the voters had to be made aware of the change. Early in his administration he created a city public relations department. Under the able guidance of David R. McGuire, Jr., a highly intelligent former reporter who understood the multiple complexities of both politics and the press, the new department dispensed information to the citizenry. Its primary duties were twofold. It kept the achievements of the Morrison administration constantly in the public eye, and it sought to minimize personal and governmental mistakes.
In addition to press releases, press conferences, public appearances, and other events/activities, McGuire and his successors used motion picture film as a tool with which to promote New Orleans city government in general and the Mayor's Office in particu lar. Just how film footage was used by the Public Relations Office is unclear, however. We do know that by 1962 the Mayor was presenting a "Year End Report" on one of the local television stations.

Description of the Film Footage Series

Rolls containing miscellaneous material were assigned the subject "Various."
