This Web site displays documents, photographs and other artifacts from the Archives of the New Orleans - Santa Fe District of the De La Salle Christian Brothers. Established in 1921, this province of the Christian Brothers has its roots in the now defunct District of New Orleans and District of Santa Fe. Both of these Districts played an important part in their respective city's religious and educational development. A number of items in the archives predate the NOSF District, and it is one of the intentions of this Web site to display some of these items.
A secondary purpose of this Web site is to provide a resource for the Christian Brothers of the New Orleans - Santa Fe District and their Lasallian colleagues as they research the origins of the work of the Christian Schools in the South and Southwest.
