201. Emily Clark, part 1

201. Emily Clark, part 1. We interview Emily about her book, Masterless Mistresses: The New Orleans Ursulines and the Development of a New World Society, 1727-1834. Emily was the first secular historian allowed into the archives of the Ursuline convent in New Orleans.  She found a treasure trove of information about the early history of the Ursuline nuns and their work in New Orleans. We have the Ursuline Correspondence on our web site now.
