Might I recommend that one enter the keywords of either: "Ashton Phelps", or "Esmond Phelps".

Many interesting items related to:

a. Tulane University (Board of Tulane)

b. Tulane University, "Tulane's Kings and Queens"

c. REX, King of Carnival

d. Comments of President George Bush, Sr directed to Ashton Phelps

Of course, one would also be somewhat negligent were they not to research into the background history of the Times-Picayune and their award of the "Loving Cup" to outstanding New Orleans citizens.

Such as:

1941---Mr. Charles E. Dunbar

Thereafter, a prudent person may just want to know the background history of Mr. Charles E. Dunbar as well as his potential connections with Tulane University; REX; The Boston Club; etc; etc; etc;

"These were men, however, of small compromises rather than stategic vision. Collectively, they wielded great power. Judge John Minor Wisdom, who know (sic) them intimately, described them as a kind of "interlocking directorate" or "closed corporation," for the same people could be found on the governing bodies of the Hibernia and Whitney banks, Tulane Unversity, NOPSI, the Orleans Parish Levee Board, and the Board of Liquidation of the City Debt. Many belonged to the same social clubs (Boston and Pelican), sent their children to the same private schools (Newman and Country Day), and masked in the same Mardi Gras krews (Rex, Comus, Momus, and Proteus). This concentration of old wealth made New Orleans one of the most conservative cities in the South. More exclusive and tradiltion-bound than wealthy whites in other southern cities, such people were slow to change and, in Wisdom's view, "never did really assert themselves in favor of desegregation."

Surely, this can not be!

WTPS (Times-Picayune owned Radio Station) operating out of the Howard Memorial Library, which is in fact a portion of the Confederate Memorial Hall, of which all/both were constructed from the funds derived from the Louisiana Lottery Company (The Serpent/aka The Octopus) which was run by Confederate Veteran Charles T. Howard.

http://nutrias.org/~nopl/photos/allison/nopb/nopb51.jpg

For the photo!

Needless to say, Confederate Veteran and Louisiana Lottery co-founder Charles T. Howard was also "King" REX (1877), just as was the son, Frank T. Howard who paid for construction of the Confederate Memorial Hall in which Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, lay in state.

Frank T. Howard---REX, 1895. First recepient of the Times-Picayune awarded "Loving Cup".

http://www.tulanelink.com/tulanelink/howard_box.htm

Tom

P.S. Needless to say, the Louisiana Lottery operated under the reverse philosophy of "Robin Hood".

Robin Hood of course robbed from the rich to give to the poor.

The Louisiana Lottery robbed from the poor to give to the rich.

One should not kid themselves into believing that any portion of the Confederate Museum or the Howard Library have ever left control of direct descendents of the Confederate States of America.

"After leaving the FBI offices, BARRIOS and GATLIN met with a Mr. Dunbar, who occassionally represents the United Fruit Co. in New Orleans. They asked for one million dollars from the United Fruit Co., in support of BARRIOS intended revolutionary movement in Guatemala, but they were unseccessful in obtaining any commitment."

"One of the many oddities of that amazing day is that when Oswald was arrested he had on him a payroll stub from the American Bakery Co. dated August 1960."

Keep it coming Tom.

321 St. Charles St., New Orleans - any idea if that was on the same block as 344 Camp Street?  I did a mapquest - can't tell.  Within a stone's throw for sure.  Interesting.

- lee

Glad to know that someone at least reads the ravings.

I will attempt to find my old NO City Street Map and post some of it.

As regards the 344 Camp St. Bldg., there appears to be an extremely curious link to this bldg. as well.
