Sr. Hilary Ross, DC, was not only a brilliant and widely published researcher on leprosy who ran the laboratory at the leprosarium in Carville, but she also functioned informally as Carville's historian.

Dr. Isadore Dyer and Sr. Beatrice Hart were two early founders of the Louisiana Leper Home, in a rural community located on the East bank of the Mississippi River that became known as Carville.
