Title: Joseph-Aurélien Cornet, F.S.C. Collection

The Field Research Archive of Frère Joseph Cornet was established at Loyola University New Orleans when Fr. Cornet gave his field notebooks to the University between 1998 and 2001. The archive is the result of Fr. Cornet's 28 year residency in the Congo which began with a teaching appointment at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1964. He also lectured at Lovanium University of Kinshasa. Fr. Cornet was appointed director général adjoint of the Institut des Musées Nationaux du Congo (IMNC) when it was founded in 1970 and was appointed the museum's directeur général in 1975. This collection is only viewable within Special Collections & Archives, Monroe Library, Loyola University New Orleans.
