Tricentennial History: The Double Dealer

by The 100 Companies

The South is known for many things, but outside of our little world, our literature can often go overlooked. This was even more true in the ’20s, when a group of journalists and poets decided to start The Double Dealer in New Orleans.

The publication featured literary greats like Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner and Sherwood Anderson, among others. Its goal was to increase the legitimacy of Southern writing and authors. The ’20s was the ideal time for the publication in New Orleans, as many bohemian artists flocked to the French Quarter for its reasonable cost of living and historical significance.
