Hurricane Isaac made its landfall in Louisiana on the evening of August 28, 2012, as a Category 1 hurricane, continuing to batter the state for days. Isaac caused at least nine fatalities in the United States and at least thirty-four in Hispaniola.
Our Schiro Reading Room has now resumed its normal schedule, as the fall semester gets underway.
We learned Wed., 9/5, that a long-time Howard-Tilton library colleague, Ann George, was among those who perished in the storm.
