Leon Miller, head of the Louisiana Research Collection (LaRC) at Tulane University, unfurls a banner for the New Orleans Community Chest.

The New Orleans Community Chest was founded in 1924 as the fund-raising arm of the Council of Social Agencies of New Orleans. While a few Community Chests remain, most changed their name to “The United Way” by the early 1960s.

LaRC preserves the records of the Council of Social Agencies as part of its special mission to preserve and document social welfare activities in our area. In addition to preserving the records of the New Orleans Council of Social Agencies, LaRC is the official archives of the Jewish Children’s Home, Kingsley House, the National Council of Jewish Women, the Poydras Home, the Protestant Children’s Home, the Traveler’s Aid Society, the Waldo Burton Home, the Orleans Neighborhood Centers, the Women’s Exchange, the YWCA, and many more.
