In an effort to solve our increasingly urgent preservation problems caused by the hurricanes in our parish, we are making an effort to extend our collections into new media. I hope you enjoy our attempt at preserving our past in the digital archives of the Cameron Parish Library collection.

Cameron Parish Photos

Part of Cameron’s persona is it’s ability to withstand all that nature throws our way.  Hurricanes Audrey and Rita devesitated our home, but the people stood strong and are rebuilding more and more each day. 

In 2008, three years after Rita, Hurricane Ike came ashore and brought a 22-foot (6.7 m) storm surge, which was far worse than Rita’s 10-foot (3.0 m) surge. Nearly every square inch of the coastline in that area was flooded heavily, with surge and floodwaters reaching 60 miles inland, as far north as Lake Charles. In Cameron Parish the communities of Cameron, Holly Beach, Hackberry, Johnson Bayou, Creole, and Grand Chenier were essentially destroyed. Hundreds of people had to be rescued from rooftops, including 363 people who were rescued by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Search and Rescue teams in conjunction with the Louisiana National Guard and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Check out the links below to see what the people of Cameron Parish had to overcome and why we are some of the hardest working people in Louisiana!

Cameron Parish Pilot Digitized Newspapers

The Digitized Cameron Pilot Newspaper Project is a project that was undertaken by the Cameron Parish Library & the Cameron Pilot to digitize more than sixty years worth of historical Cameron Parish Pilot newspapers and make them accessible to anyone, anywhere, on-line for free on the Cameron Parish Library’s website.

To date, only a few of historical newspaper issues have been digitized and the files are available as a test.  There are some gaps in files that we will hope to fill soon. Many more newspapers are still being digitized from original newspapers, microfilm and Cameron Parish Pilots PDF files.

This test of the Pilot Newspaper Project hopes to have searchable text available to users to ease in their searching.  Just download the file, click CTRL & F, then type in your search term.

Note: Missing issues reflect gaps in the original newsprint or microfilm collections scanned.

**Cameron Parish Library generally does not own the rights to material in the digitized newspaper collection and, therefore, cannot grant or deny permission to publish or otherwise distribute the material. It is the responsibility of the user to seek permission from the copyright holder for any purpose other than research and private study.

1958- 2002 were digitized from microfilm and not as clear as the later (2002) PDF files from the Cameron Pilot. These digitized from microfilm download a whole year at a time.
