Warren Perrin Seeks Photos for Acadiana History Book

Posted:

He is known throughout Acadiana for his work promoting and preserving our French culture and for that, Warren Perrin's efforts have elevated him to the pantheon of leading cultural activists.

Perrin is recognized for spearheading a 15 year campaign to compel Queen Elizabeth the second of England to acknowledge and apologize for the Acadians' expulsion from Nova Scotia in 1755.

And now Perrin has his sights set on preserving everything "Acadian" which includes all eight parishes that make up Acadiana's unique culture.

Perrin has already produced two pictorial books capturing history in the remarkable faces and places of Acadiana in Iberia and Vermilion Parishes.

Now the attorney, turned historian and author is focusing on St. Landry Parish.

Perrin says profits from the book are split between the publisher and museums in Acadiana.

If you have any interesting and captivating photographs you would like to share, Perrin would like to hear from you.

There is a limit as to how many photos can be included so please email your photos as soon as possible to perrin@plddo.com.
