Academy of the Sacred Heart Student Registers

Collection 137

Academy of the Sacred Heart (Grand Coteau, Louisiana).
Student Registers, 1825 1955 [Microform]

3 reels (35 mm; negative, positive)

These are lists of students who attended the Academy of the Sacred Heart, 1825-1955 and the College of the Sacred Heart, 1917-1943. These registers were used by Anna Jane Marks to prepare Register of Students of the Academy of the Sacred Heart Grand Coteau, Louisiana 1821-1971 (Lafayette, Louisiana:  The Acadiana Press, 1981). However, the registers contain more information on each student than does the Marks book.

The original registers were retained by the Academy of the Sacred Heart.
