V -rvki- American Research Institute, founded at Tulane in 1924, became a pioneer in Central American archaeology and anthropology, excavating and restoring the Mayan village of Dzibilchaltun in the Yucatan. In 1942 Tulane founded University College to provide continuing education for adults in New Orleans. Since World War II Tulane has emphasized the development of graduate studies and research in the Graduate School and in several of the professional schools. The emphasis has both strengthened the undergraduate divisions, which share faculty with the Graduate School, and produced important new knowledge. In 1977, for example. Dr. Andrew Schally of the School of Medicine received the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his research on the endocrine system. The University ' s nine librahes, which hold over 1 .3 million volumes and 12,000 penodicals, include the mam Howard-Tilton Memorial Library with branch collections in architecture and natural history, and separately administered libraries of law, medicine, business, mathematics and primate research. Special collections include the William Ransom Hogan Jazz Archive, the Maxwell Music Library, the Southeastern Architectural Archive, the Latin American Library and the Louisiana Collection of historical materials. The juxtapostion of so many disciplines on one campus creates a lively academic atmosphere. Tulane ' s speaker program ' s, film sehes, stage productions, art shows and music programs make the University a major cultural center. At the same time, the relatively small size of the individual schools and colleges preserves an identity and intimacy for their students that is more typical of a small college than a large university.

New Orleans New Orleans is a truly unique city with blend of mint julep and magnolia, French and Spanish colonial, Old South and bustling contemporary America, It is a sensual city — where aromas of spicy Creole food waft in the air. It is a historical city, founded as a small French colony by Jean Baptiste Lemoyne, Sieur de Bienville and named in honor of the regent Louis XV, due d ' Orleans, The onginal colony comprised the area known as the Vieux Carre, the French Quarter, New Orleans ' most famous and popular tourist attraction. The Quarter today still boasts narrow, cobblestoned streets; building of brick and plaster with balconies of ornate filigreed wrought iron; lovely, lush tropical patios hidden away behind shuttered porticos; numerous antique shops and art galleries; and some of the world ' s finest restaurants. Throughout the 18th century the A Vintage City French Quarter was the domain of the Creoles, the descendants of the early French and Spanish settlers. In 1803, New Orleans was ceded to the United States as a part of the Louisiana Purchase, and Americans began pouring into the city. So different were the Americans in manner and customs from the Creoles that a great animosity and competitive spirit developed between the two. The Americans settled on the up-river side of Canal Street ( " Uptown " ) and the wealthiest of those built their spacious homes in the Garden District, about 20 blocks from Canal Street. Here you will find a great variety of architectural styles — Creole, Neo-Classical, West Indiana, Italianate, Greek Revival, Victorian and several indigenous styles such as the " shotgun " and " camelback. " Farther up St. Charles Avenue is the University section with two private universities and a small women ' s college, stately homes, shops, restaurants and Audubon Park. Within Audubon Park ' s 280 acres are a zoo, golf course, bicycle and bridle trails, and large open spaces ideal for throwing footballs and frisbees. From the levee at the southern end of the park, there is a first-rate view of the Mississippi River where one can sit and watch the ships pass. And northwest of the Quarter is the Lakefront area with its seafood restaurants and view of Lake Pontchartrain. While each area of the city has its own distinctive qualities, anywhere in New Orleans you are still in — New Orleans. Whether you ' re visiting for the summer or live here year long, remember that many of New Orleans ' most vivid features cannot be appreciated by sight alone. You must hear, feel, smell and taste the character of the city.
