LSU Libraries Special Collections – Water, Water Everywhere: Control and Consequence in Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands
Just as you don’t have to dig deep to find water in Louisiana, you don’t have to search very hard for it in LSU Libraries Special Collections – the topic of water, that is. The history of Louisiana, as revealed in family papers, photographs, business records, and a variety of political and scientific collections and publications, is inextricably intertwined with waterways, our attempts to control them, and the critical consequences of the adversarial attitude towards the marsh embraced in the not-too distant past. These topics are explored in the new exhibition, “Water, Water Everywhere: Control and Consequence in Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public, running September 6 – December 21, 2022 in Hill Memorial Library at LSU.
