From Winnfield to Washington: The Life and Career of Huey P. Long

September 10, 2015, marked the 80th anniversary of the death of Huey P. Long (1893–1935), one of the most visible, influential, and controversial political figures in Louisiana history.

To examine his career and legacy, The Historic New Orleans Collection presented this exhibition of pictorial materials, objects, documents, and audio-visual components drawn from THNOC’s extensive holdings on Long, as well as loans from regional collections. Special programming and public events offering further insight into Long’s life, career, and influence were presented in conjunction with the exhibition.

From Winnfield to Washington: The Life and Career of Huey P. Long was presented with support from Kingfish Kitchen and Cocktails.
