Citation: Edmond Dédé Letter, Earl K. Long Library, University of New Orleans. Note: The collection originally was named the Joseph Logsdon Collection because it was donated by Dr. Logsdon. After Dr. Logsdon’s papers also were given to the library, the title of this collection was changed to reflect its content and to permit Dr. Logsdon’s name to be associated with his own papers.
A black Creole born in 1829, Edmond Dédé began his musical studies in his native New Orleans. In 1857 he traveled to Europe and continued his education at the Paris Conservatory of Music. Dédé later served as director of the Alcazar Orchestra in Bordeaux. In 1893 he returned to New Orleans to give several concerts. He died in Paris in 1903.
