The Early Louisiana French Correspondence collection is a digital corpus of letters in French written in Louisiana in the 18th and 19th centuries. The purpose of the corpus is to enhance access to rare and understudied French language documents held in the LSU Libraries Special Collections division by providing images of the original documents with transcriptions. For the initial selection, Dr. Carole Salmon choose 100 letters, taking into consideration factors such as the author's gender, profession, and social status to create a diverse corpus that will be useful to a wide range of scholars and researchers in fields such as history, sociology, economy, geography, and linguistics.
