New Orleans (La.) Vieux Carre Commission
Records, ca. 1952-1979
3.5 cu. ft.

Note: These records, transferred to the City Archives in 1984-1985, are apparently all of the office files retained in the Commission office for the period since its establishment in 1937. The folders on Organizations and Oranmental ironwork are all that remained of the pre-1952 files.
