Suzanne Ormond was a native of New Orleans and was well known in the public
library system prior to her death in February 2004. She served on the New
Orleans Public Library board of directors for nearly twenty years and the New
Orleans Public Library Foundation for over a decade. In 1998, she was awarded
the Mayor's Medal of Honor. She also served as the mistress of ceremonies at the
centennial celebration of the New Orleans Public Library.
In addition to being an active civic leader, Ormond had been a pottery
craftswoman for many years and at one time owned her own pottery-manufacturing
business. A widely recognized authority on the subject, Ormond became interested
in Newcomb crafts when she was a student of the late Katherin Choi at the
Newcomb Art School.
She is coauthor of Newcomb Pottery and Its Crafts and
Favorite New Orleans Recipes, also available in French and Spanish
editions, and the author of Recipes from an Old New Orleans Kitchen,
all published by Pelican
