Grouped together by first letter of surname, the entries include date received, date discharged, and remarks. The remarks include references to transfers to other institutions, deaths (sometimes with date), and, in at least one instance, elopement of an inmate. Most, if not all, of the entries appear to be for persons delivered by personnel of the Department to the Louisiana Retreat (later De Paul Hospital) on Calhoun St. The microfilm of the records is filed under call number FML430.
The registers have been transcribed by members of the New Orleans Volunteer Association. To view the transcriptions click on the links below:
