Biographical Note

Dr. Joseph Logsdon, longtime faculty member at the University of New Orleans, has been described as a “passionate urban historian” whose many contributions enlarged the scope and study of New Orleans history.  A respected scholar, revered university professor, and tireless community activist, Logsdon’s extensive work brought national and international attention to New Orleans.

Born in Chicago in 1938, Logsdon attended the University of Chicago, where he earned his undergraduate and master’s degree. His master’s thesis, “The Rev. Archibald J. Carey and the Negro in Chicago Politics” (1961, University of Chicago), would become an important resource for historians.

Logsdon joined the history faculty at LSUNO (UNO) in 1964, and within four years, his deep interest in civil rights led him to edit and annotate (with Sue Eakin) Solomon Northup’s autobiography,  which would become the critically acclaimed book (and later film) Twelve Years a Slave. He would go on to write, co-author, or co-edit the following: Horace White: Nineteenth Century Liberal (1970); Audubon Park: An Urban Eden, (1986); Crescent City Schools: Public Education in New Orleans, 1841-1891 (1991); and Creole New Orleans: Race and Americanization (1992).

At the University of New Orleans, Dr. Logsdon served as a faculty member from 1964 until his death on June 2, 1999. He specialized in the subject areas of the Civil War, Reconstruction, late 19th century U.S. history, and local and ethnic history.  

In addition to teaching, he was the Director of the Innsbruck Summer Program (1977, 1981, 1983), Chair of the UNO History Department (1980-1984), and Director of the Ethel and Herman L. Midlo International Center for New Orleans Studies (1991 – 1999). He inspired his students to research New Orleans in new and different ways, and he directed or participated in research projects that focused on slavery, race, Free People of Color, immigration, cultural diversity, jazz, and food.

Logsdon was a prolific writer, publishing numerous articles, chapters in books, and book reviews, and he delivered lectures and made other scholarly presentations at conferences in New Orleans, throughout the United States, and in England, France, and Germany. He developed an international network of scholars with whom he collaborated in research and in special events, such as the Sidney Bechet Centennial Celebration, held in New Orleans in 1997. Under Logsdon’s direction, the Bechet conference featured multiple panels of scholars and a series of concerts to bring renewed attention to the New Orleans musician who moved to Paris in the late 1920s.

Logsdon’s knowledge of New Orleans history attracted the attention of journalists and filmmakers, who sought him out for his expertise. He was an active member of the NAACP, a tireless advocate for public education, and referee, or manuscript reviewer, for professional historical journals. The University of New Orleans awarded him the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding and Devoted Teaching Service in 1997.

Tulane scholar Lawrence N. Powell noted that “Joe had an inimitable gift for connecting the scholar’s abstractions with ground-level experience. It was as though present and past were seamlessly joined in his mind.”
