As a volunteer for the New Orleans City Archives, Randy has processed historical documents dating to Louisiana's Colonial Period. Currently he is processing the Ordinances and Resolutions for the New Orleans City Council from 1895 to the post baby-boom era. (He is thoroughly enjoying working in the 20th Century for a change of pace!)  Here are a few of Randy's projects for the New Orleans City Archives:


Newspaper Collection, 1787-1974 Holdings by Year

Underwriters Inspection Bureau of New Orleans Street rate slips, 1897

Alphabetical Index of Changes in Street Names, Old and New Period 1852 to Dec. 1st 1938

 

Randy is a graduate of the Delgado College Tour Guiding Course as well as the The Friends Of The Cabildo Tour Guide Class and Save Our Cemeteries, to both of which he holds membership.  He is also a member of The Louisiana Landmarks Society, The Historic New Orleans Collection, The Louisiana Historical Society, The Preservation Resource Center, The Tour Guide Association of Greater New Orleans and, miraculously, still finds the time to serve as a volunteer docent for the James Pitot House on Bayou St. John.

 

Randy specializes in walking tours of the French Quarter, Garden District, Cemeteries and many more; he can put together a specialized tour on your topic of interest from Literary History, Opera History, Voodoo, Architecture and more.  Give Randy a call or send an email to arrange a walking tour with him.  (Advance reservations required for specialized walking tours.)
