Chin-Deep in Debris

Special Collections & Archives proudly presents Chin-Deep in Debris: A Katrina Retrospect One Decade Later!

Scheduled to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Chin-Deep in Debris: A Katrina Retrospect One Decade Later is a multi-media exhibit highlighting Loyola University’s resilient response to the Category 3 storm and the destruction left in its wake.

Featured within the exhibit are photographs by Harold Baquet and select publications of The Maroon and The Wolf. In addition, a number of interviews of the Hurricane Katrina Oral Histories Collection are available for viewing.

To read further on the topic of Hurricane Katrina as it relates to Loyola University, full editions of The Maroon published during the Spring 2006 semester can be accessed online here. Likewise, The Wolf (2006) can be viewed in its entirety here.

We sincerely hope that you join us on the 3rd floor of Monroe Library this semester! Special Collections & Archives is open for research and quiet study Monday-Thursday, 9:00-4:30 and Friday, 9:00-12:00.

    Wish I could be there to see it. Was on staff in ’06 in the Danna Center in Student Activities. Wrote up my own blog post about my Katrina story yesterday on my site. I will always be thankful that I was an employee of Loyola University New Orleans and that we were looked after by the Jesuits. May God Bless Loyola.
