About this title

Synopsis:

From Pierre le Moyne, Sieur d'Iberville of the seventeenth century to David C. Treen of contemporary times, the governorship of Louisiana has been occupied by a succession of history-making figures. This volume presents concise biographical sketches of each of Louisiana's governors -- from 1699 to the present. For the first time in a single work, portraits of 64 Louisiana governors are included, many of them from early colonial times.

From the Inside Flap:

From Pierre le Moyne, Sieur d'Iberville, the first man to hold the office, the governorship of Louisiana has been occupied by a succession of history-making figures. There was Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, governor from 1713 to 1716, who founded Detroit in 1701 and whose name now graces millions of automobiles. Jimmie Davis is known for composing one of the most famous songs in the world, "You Are My Sunshine," now the state song. Murphy James Foster served two terms, through catastrophic flooding and social unrest. His grandson, Murphy J. ("Mike") Foster, also served two terms as governor 100 years later.

This volume presents concise biographical sketches of each of Louisiana's governors, from 1699 to the present. For the first time in a single work, portraits of sixty-seven Louisiana governors are included, from early colonial times to the election of the first woman governor, Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, in 2003.

The late Miriam G. Reeves was a native of East Feliciana Parish and a life-long student of her home state. She held a bachelor of arts degree from Centenary College and a master of science from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and later did post-graduate work at Columbia University. She served for many years with the Louisiana State Department of Education.
