Administrative History

Known for her rebuttals, appeals, and lawsuits in the court of law, Mrs. Mary Cazalas made quite a name for herself. She attended several institutions, including Oglethorpe University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Med. Since the beginning of her academic career in Louisiana, she focused solely on nursing as it applies to the law. She wrote numerous articles and a book on the intertwining of the two subjects. Along with writing, she oversaw mock trials, participated in trials, and consulted with other lawyers. She died on September 20, 2013, leaving behind almost seven decades of legal triumphs as her legacy.


The collection includes Mrs. Mary Cazalas’ obituary and written documents. In addition, there are also photos and articles of her family in the collection.
