Marilyn Miller featured in WWNO story on WWII

January 12th, 2017

Spanish and Portuguese professor Marilyn Miller is featured in a WWNO article on WWII Internment Camp, “Camp Algiers.” The article is written by Laine Kaplan-Levenson.

“Marilyn Miller stands outside the U.S. Border Patrol Station in Algiers. The entire Gulf Coast arm of the U.S. Border Patrol is managed out of the site. Marilyn’s an Associate Professor of Caribbean and Latin American Studies at Tulane University. She’s interested in how this U.S. Border Patrol facility, right on the Mississippi River in Algiers, was used during World War II, when it was Camp Algiers.

When we asked to be let in to the facility, we were told to call Agent Robert Rivet and schedule an appointment. Rivet didn’t even know about the chapter Marilyn is researching. He only knew about an even earlier use of the compound.”
