Le Chêne: Friends of the Library Newsletter
For over fifteen years the Friends of the Library Newsletter has been published with contributions from members of the Friends, and the Library's personnel. As the publishing arm of the Friends group, Le Chêne has presented news on the organization along with illustrated and informative articles gleaned from the Library's Special Collections on historical figures associated with the University, or highlighting a unique collection or item within the Library.
The Oak (le chêne in French) has served as a symbol of strength and unity in the United States since the founding of the nation, and has always been an integral part of the Acadian culture and traditions of South Louisiana. Dr. Edwin L. Stephens, first president of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (then Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute), recognized this with his program to plant the many beautiful live oaks which grace our campus today. The cover design is an original drawing rendered specifically for the purpose by Mr. George Rodrigue, Lafayette native and internationally acclaimed artist.
