   John Magill of THNOC to Illuminate

The French Quarter Before Our Time

What  was the French Quarter
like in 1910  when  the  Su-
preme   Court Building  was
brand new?  John Magill, Cu-
rator and Head  of Research
Services at the Historic New
Orleans  Collection, will ex-
plain it all-with a unique vis-
ual aid-when he presents the
next   program     in   our
Learning at the Law Library
series on  Tuesday  evening,
April 24, in the new Louisiana
Supreme   Court Museum   on
the first floor of the court-
house. The public is invited to
attend this free program. To
accompany  his lecture Magill
will use both slides and the
model  of the French Quarter
as it was in 1915, which was
recently presented to the His-
toric New Orleans Collection
and is temporarily on display
in the Supreme Court Histori-
cal Society's museum.   The
illustrated lecture, sponsored
by  the Friends of the  Law

Library, will begin at 6 o'clock
preceded by light refreshments
starting at 5:00. Attendees may
also view the  exhibits in the
Supreme  Court Museum   prior
to the lecture.

John Magill is widely-recognized
as one of foremost historians of

New  Orleans and the French
Quarter in particular. A native
of the city who was brought up
in California, he returned to
earn both his bachelor's and
master's degrees in history at
the University of New Orleans.

Model of 1915 French Quarter Displayed in Museum

On  March  2 a unique attrac-
tion, a model of the French
Quarter as it was in 1915 was
opened for public viewing in
the new   Louisiana Supreme
Court  Museum   on  the first
floor of the courthouse.  A
distinguished delegation  of
French  government  officials,
including Renaud  Donnedieu
de Vabres, the Minister of Cul-
ture and Media, presented the
model  to The  Historic New

Orleans Collection as a gift to
the people of New Orleans. At
the dedication ceremony Chief
Justice Calogero spoke of the
influence of France on Louisi-
ana law and of the French heri-
tage of many of the early jus-
tices of the Supreme Court. The
model will remain at the court-
house until early June when it
will be moved to its permanent
location at the new addition to
the HNOC's  Williams Research

Center. Also currently open
to the  public at HNOC's
original building  at  533
Royal  Street is the exhibit
400 Years  of French Pres-
ence in Louisiana: Treasures
from  the Bibliothdque Na-
tionale De France.

A  labor of love, the model
was   constructed over  25
years from 1956 to 1980 by
