My Louisiana

Special Collections has a new item on the shelf! My Louisiana, with music by Henri Wehrmann and words by Russell McGuire, is one-half of a two-song set that was recently added to the archives.

The other side is a song named after our city.

To keep this item safe on the shelf, Special Collections & Archives Project Assistant Sara White made this enclosure for the item:

More information about Wehrmann, a noted engraver, musician, and teacher, can be found in this book. Wehrmann’s papers are also held by the Louisiana Research Collection at Tulane University.

To see this item, come visit us Monday – Friday from 9:00 – 4:30 on the third floor of the Monroe Library in Special Collections & Archives.
