    Louisiana's Campus
    1960-61




    Oldest portion of Louisiana's campus, from old Martin Hall to Cypress Swamp (Lake).

    Cool photo. You can see that Brown-Ayers hasn't burned down yet and new Martin Hall isn't under construction yet. Also, Maxim Doucet Hall, FG Mouton Hall and Wharton Hall are missing from the photo.

    It would look great if Martin Hall had a football stadium behind it.

    That photo brings memories of my last year on campus.

    Edith Garland Dupré.
    Ms. Dupre was a member of the first faculty at Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (now, the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette). She taught English and French, and oversaw the operation of the library.

    I have spent many a research hour in Edith's inner rooms.

    I saw a student strut his stuff in a streak in front of Edith's place in 1974.

    Ms Dupre', after retirement, had a bookstore that she named Sans Souci. I can remember buying a few books there as a kid, and recall how diminutive she was, maybe just over 5 feet.

    And when she drove her car, she could barely see over the steering wheel. The painting in the library must be close to life sized.

    Sans souci= carefree or possibly worry free.

    A cool video recently posted on youtube and FB: the first part features downtown, but it ends with a drive through campus. Other than stating it is in 1960's, it doesn't give a specific date. However, from the looks of it, it seems to be very early 1960's.
    Oh, and it has a great soundtrack to boot.
