This relatively small group of photographs, shot between 1946 and 1964, reflects mainly ceremonial aspects of Mayor deLesseps S. Morrison's activities. The four Morrison inauguration ceremonies are among the better represented categories and a small group of snapshots illustrates the funeral of Mayor Morrison and thus extends the series beyond the Morrison administration. Many other photographs from the Morrison administration can be found among the photographs in the Municipal Government Collection representing specific city agencies, departments, boards and commissions.
Mayor Morrisons records (1946-1961 [bulk 1956-1961] ) can be found in the City Archives. A finding aid is available on the New Orleans Public Library website.
Additional collections of Morrison photographs can be found at Tulane University in the Manuscripts Collection.
