Arrangement and Scope

The letters here were removed from the Louisiana Division's Vertical File and the City Archives' Official Vertical file to form this artifical series. Their original location is unclear, although they were obviously among the files kept by the City Librarian; whether they were weeded by the Librarian himself as routine correspondence files were discarded or whether they were put into the vertical files by library staff at a later date is unknown.

For the most part, the correspondence concerns Library matters (both regarding New Orleans Public Library and its predecessor the Fisk Library), most usually requests for information by the correspondents.

The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by the first name of the correspondent.
