The Historic New Orleans Collection is proud to introduce the Caillot Circle, a brand-new membership group focused on young professionals between the ages of 21 and 45, along with “the young at heart.” This dynamic group has a unique mission to support local students and educators, enhancing their access to The Collection’s wealth of programs and resources. 

Beginning in 2017, Caillot Circle memberships will help to defray the cost of bus transportation to The Collection for underserved local and regional school field trips. In addition, the Caillot Circle will help provide scholarships for teachers from rural areas to attend The Collection’s education workshops. 

The Caillot Circle is named for a young Frenchman, Marc-Antoine Caillot, whose memoir, A Company Man: The Remarkable French-Atlantic Voyage of a Clerk for the Company of the Indies, was recently published by The Collection. Caillot’s travelogue offers a young person’s perspective of major historical events in the earliest days of Louisiana— along with his own string of pranks and escapades.
