Division Mission Statements

  • Hogan Jazz Archive The Hogan Jazz Archive, a department within Tulane University's Special Collections Division, is a renowned resource for New Orleans Jazz research. Our collection includes oral histories, recorded music, photographs and film, and sheet music and orchestrations. We also maintain files of manuscripts, clippings, and bibliographic references.
  • Research Tulane's Louisiana Research Collection is the world’s largest research archives for New Orleans and the world’s second largest for Louisiana as a whole (after LSU - Baton Rouge). Among our holdings are the papers of Hale and Lindy Boggs, Bob Livingston, David Treen, Victor Schiro, Chep Morrison, and Martha Gilmore Robinson, as well as the papers of Jefferson Davis (we preserve almost everything Jefferson Davis wrote after he became president of the Confederacy), the papers of Stonewall Jackson (there are three main collections of Stonewall Jackson papers; we preserve one of them), and the Gettysburg letters of Robert E. Lee. In total, we preserve about 3.5 linear miles of archival collections documenting the very special history and culture of our region. Our mission is to find and preserve archival holdings deserving permanent preservation and to make those holdings available to researchers from around the world.
