Carol Haase is a retired teacher and volunteer at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. When she rose to docent chairman, Hasse was frustrated by the lack of information readily available on the building. Her resulting research, however, answered more than just a few tour-guide questions. It quickly amassed to a book-length work-the only complete history of the building. Haase began volunteering at the Capitol as a tour guide in 1995. Prior to volunteering she taught French for almost thirty years in Mississippi and Louisiana, at both elementary and secondary levels. She is on the Advisory Board of the Old State Capitol Associates and the Board of Managers for the Baton Rouge Woman's Club. Haase was born and raised in Baton Rouge and graduated from Louisiana State University in 1966 with a B.S. in secondary education. When she isn't volunteering, she enjoys playing the piano and spending time with her two children and four grandchildren. Haase lives with her husband in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
