Meet the Author

Henry C. Castellanos was one of New Orleans' most prominent citizens. He was a lawyer, teacher, and journalist, serving for several years on the editorial staff of the Louisiana Courier. At the time of his death in 1896, Castellanos was planning on writing a series of books on the unwritten history of Louisiana. Because of ill health, however, he was only able to complete New Orleans As It Was , which endures today as a testament to his genius.
