Louisiana Encyclopedia 1909 - St. Tammany Towns

 In 1909, Alcée Fortier, Lit. D., a professor of Romance Languages in Tulane University, edited a two volume encyclopedia on the state of Louisiana. It was described as "Comprising Sketches of Counties, Towns, Events, Institutions and Persons, Arranged in Cyclopedic Form." It was published in Atlanta, GA, by the Southern Historical Association.

Here are some excerpts from the encyclopedia entry regarding several St. Tammany communities in 1909.
