Born in New Orleans in 1852, Grace Elizabeth King was one of the best known literary figures from New Orleans. Memories of a Southern Woman of Letters, written by Grace King and published after her death in 1932, gave us a portrait of women who went through the Civil War and its aftermath having to shed the role of sheltered wife and mother, adopting the new role of bread winner and independent person.

This home was a meeting place for artists and writers in the early 1900's.

Grace King (1851-1932) was one of the writers offended by Cable's version of New Orleans' Creole society, and her first published story, "Monsieur Motte" (1886), was in part an answer to Cable's "slander." King was an intimate of Charles Gayarre and, like the older writer, championed the city's people, customs, heritage, and idiosyncracies. Often described as a "romanticist" and an apologist for the old Southern way of life, King herself once wrote, "I am a realist a la mode de Nouvelle Orleans." King was also the first woman to write histories of the South--Jean-Baptiste Le Moine, Sieur de Bienville (1892), History of Louisiana (1894), New Orleans: the Place and the People (1913), Creole Families of New Orleans (1921)--and she was an early advocate of women's suffrage. King's fiction includes Tales of a Time and Place (1892), Balcony Stories (1893), and The Pleasant Ways of St. Menard (1916). During her lifetime, she was the grande dame of the New Orleans literary scene and held court at her home at 1749 Coliseum Street.

 

In this undated letter to Charles Lelong, the Chairman of the Board of the New Orleans Public Library (then still known as the "Fisk Library"), King asks for what we call today a "special loan." She asked Mr. Lelong to arrange for her to borrow a copy of the journal Revue des Deux Mondes, which was not part of the circulating collection. The fact that she went straight to the top with her request tells us something about Miss King's position in the city--and her self-confidence. She probably got her special loan!

 

Charles Gayarre (1805-1895) was a lawyer, judge, politician, historian, essayist, dramatist, and novelist. Born on the Bore Plantation (now the site of Audubon Park), the grandson of Etienne de Bore, New Orleans' first mayor, Gayarre studied law in Philadelphia and returned to New Orleans to begin his legal practice in 1829. His political career began when he was elected to the state legislature in 1830; he would also hold elected office in the U.S. Senate (although ill health prevented him from taking his seat) and serve as the state's attorney general and as presiding judge of the New Orleans city courts. Gayarre's masterwork was the four volume Histoire de la Louisianne, published between 1854 and 1866.

 

Shown below at right is Gayarre's inscription of The School for Politics: A Dramatic Novel (1855) to the library of the Mechanics Institute, one of two libraries that eventually merged in 1896 to become the New Orleans Public Library.
