Information Sought on the 1905 Yellow Fever Epidemic in Lafayette (Richard)

I am researching the 1905 yellow fever epidemic and its effects on the city of Lafayette, LA. This research is for a Public History course with the Universiy of Louisiana at Lafayette focusing on local history in downtown Lafayette.
