Charting the Gulf: Tri-Centennial Connections at the Latin American Library

 Wednesday, October 18, 2017 to Saturday, September 1, 2018

As the city of New Orleans celebrates the 300th anniversary of its founding, it also commemorates a three centuries long relationship with its neighbors in the Circum-Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. The Latin American Library celebrates this history with Charting the Gulf: Tricentennial Connections. In a series of six cabinets, we display images of maps, photographs, print ephemera, and manuscripts from the Library's collections that document three historic moments in the evolving relationship between New Orleans and its Southern neighbors:

  • Early European Cartography of the Gulf, 16th-18th centuries;
  • Trade and Travel Across the Gulf, 19th - 20th centuries;
  • Tulane University's John Geddings Gray Memorial Archaeological Expedition to Middle America in 1928.

The exhibit is located just off the 4th floor lobby, to the left of the main entrance to the Taylor Center and will be on display through 2018.
