In the civil law. This term corresponds nearly to “guardian.” (f. c., a person appointed to have the care of the person of a minor and the administration of his estate,) except that the guardian of a minor who has passed a certain age is called r “curator,” and has pow ers and duties differing somewhat from those of a tutor. By the laws of Louisiana, minors under the age of fourteen years, if males, and un- der the age of twelve years, if females, are, both as to their persons and their estates, placed under the authority of a tutor. Above that age, and until their majority or eman- cipation, they are placed under the authority of a curator. Civ. Code La. 183S, art. 263.
