NEW! SS Labouisse Finding Aid

The Southeastern Architectural Archive (SEAA) recently finalized the processing of the Samuel Stanhope Labouisse Office Records.  Samuel Stanhope Labouisse (1879-1918) was a prominent New Orleans architect, the nephew of Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886) and a founding member of the Louisiana chapter of the American Institute of Architects. A New Orleans native, Labouisse graduated from Tulane University (B.E. architecture, 1900) and then obtained a B.S. degree in architecture from Columbia University, where he studied with William Ware. Following his graduation, he attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the American Academy in Rome (1903-04).

Many thanks to Tulane School of Architecture architect-educator Milton Scheuermann, Jr. for donating Labouisse's Grand Tour sketches to the SEAA!
