In some ways, I wish it would have been otherwise. Those of you who have had the lion’s share of your archival experience here—or at the other special archives for southern sources, like Louisiana State University, Duke University, or the South Caroliniana Library—are very fortunate. You can count on organization, and on expertise, and on scholarly camaraderie. It’s generally (as many of the rest of you know) not like that at the various departments of archives and history. When I started out with what became The Roots of Southern Populism, [1] I headed off, with more than a little trepidation, to Atlanta and

Wolfskill (2011) suggested holding summer agriculture workshops for high school students. The authors found that students’ attitudes toward agriculture careers were significantly more positive after they participated in this type of workshop. Other recruitment attempts of this nature could include (a) sending CoA representatives to guest-speak in high school agriculture classes, (b) contacting high school agriculture teachers to set up a class field trip to the university, and (c) passing out informational pamphlets about the majors offered through the CoA at FFA or 4-H activities and competitions hosted at Louisiana State University.

Seroprevalence of Ehrlichia canis, Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Ehrlichia ewingii in dogs in North America

Seroprevalence of Ehrlichia canis, Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Ehrlichia ewingii in dogs in North America

A total of 8,662 canine serum samples were collected from 14 veterinary colleges, 4 commercial diagnostic laboratory locations and 6 private veterinary practices. Participating veterinary colleges included Auburn University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Illinois, Kansas State University, Louisiana State University (LSU), Mississippi State University, University of Missouri, North Carolina State University (NCSU), The Ohio State Univer- sity, Oklahoma State University (OKSU), Purdue Univer- sity, University of Tennessee, and Texas A&M University (TAMU). Participating commercial diagnostic laboratories were located in Dallas, TX, Baltimore, MD, Totowa, NJ, and North Grafton, MA. The private practices were located in Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina and Ten- nessee. The majority of samples collected from veterinary colleges and from all diagnostic laboratories consisted of serum that remained after performance of requested diag- nostic tests unrelated to this study. These samples were chosen randomly, without regard to clinical signs or sus- pected diagnosis, from among all remaining serum sam- ples from dogs ≥ 6 months of age. Serum samples collected from dogs involved in shelter medicine programs represented all samples from Texas A&M and 183/307 serum samples from Louisiana State University. Samples submitted from NCSU included an equal number (250 each) of randomly chosen samples and samples previously submitted to the NCSU Vector-Borne Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (VBDDL) for serological testing. More than half of the serum samples collected from OKSU (360/503) were originally submitted for brucellosis testing. For sam- ples submitted from private veterinary practices, a small additional volume of blood (approximately 2 ml) was col- lected with informed owner consent specifically for the purposes of this study at the time of blood collection related to routine veterinary care; sampled dogs were cho- sen from the general population and not selected based on particular clinical signs. Although most samples were col- lected between January 2009 and October 2010, 250 sam- ples from the NCSU-VBDDL were collected during the first 6 months of 2006.

Holmes Student Union lobby. Seventeen transfer college admissions counselors representing fourteen 4-year colleges and universities were in attendance to discuss transfer information with students. Representatives answered questions about scholarships, financial aid, and academic and student life. Many of those questions focused on transfer scholarships most of which require a student to have at least 48 transferable hours.

<p>Influence of Diabetic Retinopathy on the Relationship Between Body Mass Index and Mortality in Patients with Poorly Controlled Type 2 Diabetes</p>

<p>Influence of Diabetic Retinopathy on the Relationship Between Body Mass Index and Mortality in Patients with Poorly Controlled Type 2 Diabetes</p>

Several studies have shown a U-shaped association between BMI and mortality. The optimal BMI for survival appears to depend on the characteristics of the populations. Among the patients with newly diagnosed diabetes, the low- est mortality rate in the obesity group (BMI of 30 ‒ 35 kg/m 2 ) was reported in the Louisiana State University Hospital- Based Longitudinal Study; 22 among the patients with known type 2 diabetes and a median diabetic duration of 9 years, the lowest mortality rate in the group with BMI between 33.2 and 39.4 kg/m 2 was reported in the Madrid DIABETES Study with the mortality records of the Spanish National Institute of Statistics. 23 In comparison to subjects with normal glucose regulation, it has been deduced that the optimal BMI was approximately 1.5 kg/m 2 higher for patients with incident diabetes and approximately 3 kg/m 2 higher for patients with known diabetes. 13 In the Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) study, however, Xing et al 14 reported contrary fi ndings. Among patients with long-standing diabetes, the highest risk of mor- tality in patients with BMI ≥ 40 kg/m 2 was observed with no

Henry Louis Rey, Spiritualism, and Creoles of Color in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans

Henry Louis Rey, Spiritualism, and Creoles of Color in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans

One such early meeting took place on the evening on November 5, 1863 when an interracial crowd hotly debated the controversial question of franchise for men of African descent. Predictably, most of the white orators soundly quashed the radical idea of blacks voting; but a Black Creole, François Boisdoré, spoke eloquently of the rationale for black male suffrage. He observed that valiant black soldiers from Louisiana were fighting the bloody battles of the North, and could potentially give their lives for the noble cause. He reasoned that “[i]f the United States has the right to arm us, it certainly has the right to allow us the rights of suffrage.” Boisdoré’s sentiments were echoed by another black speaker, Captain Pinchback, who boldly stated that “they did not ask for social equality, and did not expect it, but they demanded political rights – they wanted to be men.”

Households and Neighborhoods Among Free People of Color in New Orleans:  A View from the Census, 1850-1860

Households and Neighborhoods Among Free People of Color in New Orleans: A View from the Census, 1850-1860

In a generation or two the policy of “Americanizing” the old racial order in New Orleans might have worked to subvert the influence of the free people of color but a slave revolt in 1811 upriver from New Orleans in St. John the Baptist Parish and the British invasion of Louisiana in 1815 caused the American authorities to rethink their position. 35 The American authorities were well aware of the reputation of the black militias during the colonial period so their remaining members were incorporated into the rag-tag American defenses of New Orleans. With their help, New Orleans was saved from the British army that was soundly defeated in the Battle of New Orleans. Although the American General Andrew Jackson had promised them equality, neither he nor the free black militia members pressed the issue but they did gain a renewed respect for their military abilities. 36 From 1815 until the 1830s, the free people of color continued to maintain their unique social status.

Diversification of West Nile virus in a subtropical region

Diversification of West Nile virus in a subtropical region

in the western hemi- sphere occurred in 2002 and 2003 and was directly attributed to WNV [3]. Florida, with its sub-tropical and tropical climate leading to the possibility for year-round transmission, decreased extrinsic incubation period due to increased temperatures, and transmission-competent mosquito populations alongside major bird migratory pathways and over wintering sites would appear to be fer- tile ground for major WNV outbreaks and diversification [10]. Conversely, there has been little WNV activity in Florida to date. The lack of WNV activity could be due to anthropogenic reasons, such as the existence of stringent mosquito control efforts already in place throughout the majority of the state, such as impoundments and aerial pesticide applications and the prevalence of climate con- trol measures such as air conditioning and screening lim- iting human contact with infected mosquitoes [11]. Alternatively, this could possibly be due to the pressure of St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV), a native flavivirus,

The Use of German Prisoners of War in Louisiana's Agricultural Labor Force, 1942 - 1946

The Use of German Prisoners of War in Louisiana's Agricultural Labor Force, 1942 - 1946

The Louisiana agricultural industry also experienced as benefit from the use of German POWS beyond the obvious that Louisiana farmers harvested their crops rather than have them rot in the fields. The statistical data all indicate an improvement in production. Overall, agricultural production increased. 94 Taking into account the sugar cane production alone, the figures show an increase in output compared to the period before the use of POWS and the output during their employment. 95 The increase in sugar cane production is evident in a comparison of the Office of War Production (OWP) estimates of the maximum capacity of Louisiana sugar cane capabilities in 1941 and the actual acreage of sugar cane harvested during the years that German POWS labor was use. The OWP projected a harvest of approximately 300,000 acres in 1942, the year prior to arrival and usage of Germans POW labor. During the 1942-1944 periods, Louisiana sugar cane harvest stood at 772,000 acres or approximately 384,000 acres per year an increase of 84,000 acres on yearly average. 96
