BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

Henry L. Garland (1866-1960) was born in Opelousas, St. Landry Parish, La., to Julia Bullard Garland (b. 1833) and Henry L. Garland, Sr., (1826-1908), an attorney and politician of Opelousas. He was educated at Manhattan College in New York, practiced law in New Orleans for many years, and was best known for his revision of the Louisiana Code. After his retirement from the legal profession, he operated a book store in New Orleans.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE
