Historical Note

 

 

            New Orleans University, chartered in 1873 as an educational institution for black students, traced its origins to the Union Normal School which had been organized in 1869, Thomson's Biblical Institute, and an academy on Bayou Teche.  First located  at 459 (old number) Camp Street (between Race and Orange streets), the campus was later moved to a four-acre site in what is today the 5300 block of St. Charles Avenue.  In 1930 it merged with Straight University to form Dillard University.
