This year, the Krewe of Rex is marking its 150th Anniversary. To honor this milestone, the Historic New Orleans Collection launched a new exhibit showcasing rare holdings from its Rex Archives. Curatorial cataloger with the Williams Research Center, Katherine Dunn, tells us more about the exhibition dubbed, “Fit for a King.”
