Intern Report: Remesia Shields

Tulane University’s Louisiana Research Collection contains a rich collection of materials invaluable to the history of Louisiana.  The vast holdings at LaRC made it my top choice in repositories to complete the internship requirements for my graduate studies at the University of New Orleans.   While at LaRC, I processed the Dr. Boris Weinstein Levy Family Collection and worked with the finding aids of William Beer and George Washington Cable.  I entered the finding aid information into LaRC’s online database, making these finding aids available online. 

While processing the Dr. Boris Weinstein Levy Family Collection, I came across amazing photographs including these of the Levy Meat Market and store.  The photographs in this collection are a must see!
