Creole Demoiselles – The Negro South Magazine, 1946

In May 1946, The Negro South, a popular New Orleans magazine, assigned its James A. Holland to write a brief article offering some of the history of the Crescent City’s charming colored Creoles. To accompany the article and brighten the magazine’s first issue of the spring, were featured seven lovely demoiselles. These young ladies were: Mrs. Olivia Duplantier Daliet, Miss Isabel Rouzan, Miss Eulalia LaBostrie, Miss Louise Trevigne, Miss Hybebah Ahmed, Miss Fatima Ahmed, and Miss Beatrice Perkins. All of these ladies hail from New Orleans, except Miss Beatrice Perkins of Pascagoula, the sole representative our many dear families along the Gulf Coast.
