New Orleans (La.) Office of the Mayor records.
Petition for New High School Buildings
for Boys and Girls.
A collection of hundreds of pages of signatures requesting new
high school buildings be created. The petition reads:
"To the Mayor and Common Council of the city of
"We, the undersigned citizens, taxpayers, voters, former pupils of the public schools of New
Orleans, earnestly urge the prompt erection of new, modern, and adequate High School buildings both for the boys and girls
of our city; one of these to be a Boys' High School, the need of which is urgent, imperative, and recognized by everyone."
Includes signatures from both private citizens and members of important city organizations, such as the Supreme Court
of Louisiana, the Court of Appeals, the Civil District Courts, the Cotton Exchange, the Board of Trade, the Stock Exchange,
the Progressive Union, Tulane University, and others. Because it includes signatures, addresses, and, where applicable, the
names of organizations, it is a good place to find the addresses of specific citizens and their involvement with various organizations.http://nutrias.org/inv/mayor/mayors18621920.htm#aa321
