    Scope and Contents

    This collection consists of two accessions: one that covers the Juliette and Jean Logerais time in Vietnam and the other their time in Morocco.
    The Vietnam materials include three bound volumes of transcribed extracts of letters from Juliette Logerais to her mother, 148 gelatin silver prints of various size inserted into makeshift albums, as well as ephemera such as menus, theater programs, and two printed items: a literary supplement to "Le Figaro" (10 July 1886) titled "Suvenirs du Tonkin" and two leaves from "L'Illustration" (April 1885) with the portraits of "Les Héros du Tonkin," and others. Though the notebooks of Juliette's letters were compiled in the 1910s, they cover the period of May 1899-May 1901. The letters vividly and in great detail describe the medical service in Tonkin military clinics where Dr. Logerais served, the couple's several moves from place to place, their residences, relations with the servants and other French residents, prices for various goods, local lifestyle, climate, celebrations and more. The photographs show views of Vietnam, local residents, general views of the hospital, French residents, and portraits of the Logerais.
    The Moroccan materials consist of makeshift photo albums from Jean and Juliette's time spent in Morocco accompanying the French troops there on campaigns in 1911-1912. Contains a total of 290 photographs, most with pencil captions. The photographs document French troop's movements and their camps as well as several important French and Moroccan military leaders.

    Biographical Note

    Jean and Juliette Logerais married in early 1899 and set sail for Tonkin, Vietnam, in April or May 1899. Doctor Jean Logerais worked in French military hospitals in Yen Bai (Yen Bai province, northern central Vietnam), Coc Leu (Lao Kai province, northwestern Vietnam), and Quang Yen (Quang Ninh province, northeastern Vietnam) in 1899-1901, shortly after the region had been subdued by French authorities in the course of the Pacification of Tonkin (1886-1896).
