Dennis K. Ehrhardt Papers

Collection 328

Ehrhardt, Dennis K. (1941-2011). Papers, 1972-2011

4 feet, 11 volumes, 25 maps

Dennis K. Ehrhardt was a professor at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, for 38 years. Beginning as an Associate Professor and the Coordinator of City and Regional Planning, Ehrhardt worked his way up to head of the Department of Geography when the department was created and remained the Coordinator of Geography when the department merged with the History Department. Dr. Ehrhardt taught numerous geography classes and classes related to urban planning including some at the graduate level. In addition to his university responsibilities, Dr. Ehrhardt was involved in several professional organizations serving on boards and committees and presenting papers at annual conferences. Dr. Ehrhardt also worked as a private consultant and on numerous court cases as an expert witness concerning matters of urban planning in Louisiana and Mississippi. One of the court cases for which he testified, James Hernandez v. City Council of Lafayette 3-15, was eventually heard by the Supreme Court.

Donated by Timothy Reilly.

This collection was organized using the schema followed by Dr. Ehrhardt as much as possible. This means that most items, including correspondence, are grouped by topic. In the case that loose correspondence was found organization by individual was used.

Note: Folders 1-01 through 1-07 are RESTRICTED until 3 November 2025.
