Plaquemine College. Report on account of an orphanage … 1858
Report of the President of Plaquemine College to the Honorable Legislature of the State of Louisiana on account of an orphanage and a poor day school
attached to it. January 1858. Baton Rouge : J.M. Taylor, 1858. Plaquemine College was founded by subscription and opened in 1853. The report of
the chair of the Committee on Charitable Institutions, done in March 1856, followed. Each year the school taught 6-8 orphans and a couple of dozen
poor day students. Several of the boys were plucked from the streets of New Orleans, indicated by the student statistics. The Chair of the Committee
recommended an appropriation of $5,000 as compensation for educating poor children. The next report, written in December 1857, described the Catholic
College in Plaquemine that taught 35-50 students with no state support at all, although the chair thought support was warranted. The College faculty
was provided by the Archbishop of New Orleans. There was a description of the physical plant and financials were provided. The school had a
considerable debt load and wished the government would pay off $5,775.
