New Orleans Public Library
          Jambalaya Program Records, 1975-1980

Historical Background

In 1976 the New Orleans Public Library received a $330,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to conduct a series of lectures, discussions, exhibits, and other activities examining the culture and history of New Orleans. The original grant proposal was written in consultation with an Advisory Committee which served the Library for five years. The program was named Jambalaya and from 1977 through 1980 it presented 194 events featuring 284 speakers, panelists, and performers within a framework of twenty-seven individual series.

Participants and/or correspondents included Tennessee Williams, Stephen Ambrose, Walker Percy, Paul Prudhomme, Ellis Marsalis, Dutch Morial, Charles Neville, Clarence John Laughlin, Joan Martin, Jonathan Williams, Lillian Hellman, Cleanth Brooks, Enrique Alferez, John William Corrington, John Duffy, Peter Feibleman, James K. Glassman, Shirley Ann Grau, Sheldon Hackney, Peter Kalisher, Moon Landrieu, Charles Moore, Victor Schiro, and Leonard Slatkin.

Topics explored in the Jambalaya series included the New Orleans Mardi Gras; urban setting; economy; literary scene; film-making; radio and television; music; children's books; politics; the melting pot; New Deal art; journalism; the Mississippi River; cuisine; environment; medicine; education; and future. Some programs focused on related topics as they pertained to South Louisiana outside of the Crescent City.

Scope Note

The City Archives houses the correspondence, minutes, financial records, sound recordings, posters, and other records of the Library's National Endowment for the Humanities-funded continuing education program. (Link HERE to jump to the inventory of these records.) The records document the planning, organization, and production of the individual elements of the program. Sound recordings were made of most of the events and the original reel-to-reel tapes were duplicated on cassettes for research use. (Link HERE to jump to the inventory of the sound recordings.) Also included are correspondence and minutes of Jambalaya Advisory Committee meetings; program files (including program proposals, reading lists, etc.); publicity files (including videotaped public service announcements); contracts with participants; a copy of the original proposal to NEH; and program registration records.
