BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

Francis A. de Caro is a professor emeritus of English at Louisiana State University, where he taught from 1970 to the early 2000s. He grew up in New York, earned an undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, taught English in India from 1966-1967, and studied folklore at Indiana University, where he earned his Ph.D. De Caro has written several books including Folklife in Louisiana Photography: Images of Tradition, and The Folktale Cat; he is the editor of Louisiana Sojourns: Travelers’ Tales and Literary Journeys. De Caro served as the first chairman of the Louisiana Folklife Commission, which is advisory to the Louisiana State Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and which works closely with the Folklife Program in the agency. De Caro is married to Rosan Augusta Jordan. The two were living in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina (2005).

Rosan Augusta Jordan is a retired professor of English at Louisiana State University, where she taught from the mid-1970s to the early 2000s. She earned an undergraduate degree from North Texas University, and studied folklore at Indiana University, where she earned her Ph.D. She is the associate editor of Louisiana Sojourns: Travelers’ Tales and Literary Journeys. Jordan was also involved in the women’s movement in Baton Rouge in the 1970s.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Francis A. de Caro and Rosan A. Jordan collection reflects their interest and work in the study of folklore. The topics primarily relate to folklore within Louisiana as well as British life in colonial India. Items consist of correspondence, writings, exhibitions, topical files, and printed items. The correspondence files from 1956-1979 pertain to both personal and professional matters while the files from 2005-2006 detail de Caro and Jordan’s experiences related to Hurricane Katrina and life in New Orleans following the storm. The collection also contains photographs and subject files related to Rosan Jordan’s tenure in the LSU English Department in the 1970s.

The writings files contain material for five projects related to folklore, three of which achieved publication. Three of the projects involve studies of folklore in Louisiana, one involves folktales involving cats, and the final project covers British life in colonial India. The exhibition files contain material for three folklore exhibitions curated by de Caro and Jordan and cover the topics of British life in colonial India, photographs of folklife in Louisiana, and traditional crafts in Louisiana.

Topical files include student research projects for de Caro’s folklore class (1974-1975), which detail various aspects of folklife in Louisiana. Files also contain documents related to the Louisiana Folklife Commission (1975-1984, undated), folklore related to the Gulf War (1990-1991), the Internet (1988-1993), xeroxing (undated), and material on the women’s movement in Baton Rouge (1970-1977) as collected by Jordan.

Printed items consist of brochures, handbills, posters, underground newspapers, and general items collected by de Caro and Jordan. Many of the brochures (undated) are for Louisiana businesses, cities and geographic regions, fairs and festivals, museums, parks, plantations, and historic homes. Handbills and posters (1967-2004, undated) promote events in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and South Louisiana, and relate to music, art, social functions, political functions, and Louisiana State University. The underground newspapers (1965-1974) originate from such cities as New York, Los Angeles, and Baton Rouge.
