Editorial Reviews


Pamela Tyler's subtitle captures the imperfections but resilience of generations of benevolent women, their long-lasting institution, and, ultimately, their city of New Orleans. With unrestricted access to the "voluminous" records of the Poydras Home, originally an orphanage and now a retirement community, Tyler sculpts a fascinating history of an institution's evolution to serve its community. As the home celebrates its bicentennial, its women administrators have proved themselves time and again. (Elizabeth Parish Smith The Journal of Southern History) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
