William M. "Billy" Grout Photographs

Collection 143

Grout, William M. "Billy" (1921- ) Photographs, ca. 1970-1978

ca. 6000 images (mainly negatives)

William Grout, who grew up around Walker, Louisiana, worked in many professions from rodeo cowboy to school teacher. However, from his days in the Army Air Corps during World War II he has been an avid photographer. Although he has done commercial work in portraiture and weddings, this collection reflects his interest in scenic photography. Most of the images, which were taken mainly between 1974 and 1978, are of Louisiana, especially the Florida parishes. They also indicate Mr. Grout's interest in motorcycling.

This collection is arranged by subject as assigned by Mr. Grout. It was donated to USL by the photographer in 1978.
