Ruth and Rosalie: Friendships and Historical Process

 

  Funded by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.

Dr. Bobbie Malone invites you to remember Ruth Dreyfous, to celebrate Rosalie Cohen and to consider the lives and stories of our shared past in New Orleans. Dr. Malone is the author of Rabbi Max Heller and an expert on education and documentary sources. Both Ruth Dreyfous (1901-1998) and Rosalie Cohen (now 89) changed the face of New Orleans through their involvement in social causes.

"Ruth and Rosalie: Friendships and Historical Process" took place on Sunday, September 17, 2000 at 3 PM, at the Newcomb Center for Research on Women in Caroline Richardson Hall at Tulane University. This web site is part of an online exhibit about Ruth, Rosalie, and other New Orleans women of the twentieth century, to commemorate the legacy of these important figures and to understand their impact on the city. Both website and lecture are funded by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
