Items include dossiers on his enemies
Tulane University has received a donation of papers from the personal office of Huey P. Long who attended the university's law school in 1914.
The papers, from the collection of prominent attorney and banker Jack McGuire, have been donated to Tulane's Louisiana Research Collection and will be available for review by researchers.
Included are drafts of speeches made by Long, original illustrations for his autobiography with captions in his handwriting, and campaign files.
Also in the collection are dossiers on Long's enemies and documents that reveal the Governor had always intended to name the Huey P. Long Bridge after himself.
The director of university's research collection, Leon Miller says the documents were hidden from history for over 75 years and "to have the the privelege of making them available to the international research community is tremendously exciting."
