Special Collections Zulu Carnival items in Tulane's New Wave

Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club carnival items from Special Collections accompany this morning's story in New Wave, Tulane University's daily online newspaper. If you're not subscribed to the New Wave email list, you can read the story here.

The article highlights Zulu's 100th anniversary, and the images are taken from our Carnival holdings. With Mardi Gras around the corner, we'd like to invite you to visit our collections. The Tulane Manuscripts Department preserves an extensive Carnival collection, with invitations, dance cards, programs, krewe records, and original float and costume designs.

For more information about our Carnival collection, please visit our Carnival collection page.
