Papers, 1962-1966; 1970-1978

Joseph V. DiRosa served as New Orleans Councilman-At-Large from 1962-1966 and again from 1970-1978.

DiRosa was born in New Orleans in 1915. He attended local parochial and public schools and graduated from Loyola University with a degree in accounting. After service in the Coast Guard during World War II, he returned to New Orleans and became a Certified Public Accountant in 1945. In 1947, he received a degree from Loyola Law School.

From 1952-1956, DiRosa worked as Assistant Attorney General of Louisiana, on special assignment to the Mineral Board. In 1962, he ran successfully for an at-large seat on the New Orleans City Council, and during his term was closely allied with Mayor Victor H. Schiro. He lost the seat in 1966 to Moon Landrieu. In 1970, he again sought the at-large seat and narrowly defeated Ernest N. "Dutch" Morial in a run-off election.

In 1978, DiRosa again confronted Morial, this time in a race for Mayor of New Orleans, from which Morial emerged the winner by less than 5500 votes.

Following his defeat in the mayoral race, DiRosa ran unsuccessfully for Public Service Commissioner. In 1979, he was elected to a Civil District Court judgeship, a position he held until 1986, when he resigned to run for the City Council District A seat, which he lost to Peggy Wilson. Thereafter, DiRosa served frequently as a temporary judge in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish courts by appointment of the state Supreme Court.

DiRosa died in 1997.

The records are subject-correspondence files arranged alphabetically by subject or correspondent within each year. The records of DiRosa's first term in office (1962-1966) are more complete than those of his second and third terms (1970-1978). In addition to the alphabetical/chronological arrangement, some files from the 1970-1978 period are also grouped into several large subject categories: Domed Stadium Commission Files; New Orleans Public Service Commission Files, 1972-1978 (including a large group of city documents and reports removed from the files to the City Archives Documents Collection but noted in the inventory by call number); and Sewerage and Water Board Files, 1972-1976.
