Leon Miller


As Louisiana Research Collection (LaRC) curator, I collaborate with other members of the Special Collections curatorial team to develop and enrich TUSC holdings. Working with donors and vendors, I acquire Louisiana research materials of enduring value including archives, books, serials, and ephemera. I also assist with prioritizing processing, digitization, and preservation and contribute to reference, outreach, and planning. To learn more about the materials we seek to permanently preserve, please visit https://larc.tulane.edu/giving. If you know of Louisiana materials that need permanent preservation, please contact me at lmiller@tulane.edu.
