Dr. Lynda Boren Collection

Born in Leesville, Dr. Lynda Boren received her Ph.D. from Tulane in 1979 and has taught at Tulane; Middlebury College, VT; Georgia Tech and Northwestern in Natchitoches. As a Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Boren also lectured in Germany and Thailand on American Literature and Women's Literature.

Though not members of the colony, her family lived on their own property which was located within the colony boundaries and as a child, she heard lots of stories about the people who lived there. Over the years, she has maintained her interest and collected a huge assortment of documents relating to the New Llano Colony and to socialism in general.

The collection consists of correspondence, newspapers, music books, photos and books relating to the colony.
