Thank you for your interest in The Historic New Orleans Collection. We are in the process of reorganizing our Speakers Bureau. During this interim period, please direct any inquiries to Dr. Alfred Lemmon, Director of the Williams Research Center, at Alfred.Lemmon@hnoc.org.


Scholars on staff at The Historic New Orleans Collection are available to present lectures on a variety of topics.  Community organizations, conference/tour organizers, and professors are invited to schedule a lecture by calling (504) 523-4662. Though we try our best to be of service, we’re not always able to supply speakers due to a variety of factors, such as availability of staff with specific expertise, transportation, or scheduling.
