Theirs are the accomplishments that remain etched in the history of a progressive, diverse people. A few were men of uncommon skill, foresight, and determination. Their forceful leadership often transcended the boundaries of the state and influenced national and international affairs. However, not all governors were equal to the tasks that faced them, and little evidence has endured to inform us about their unsuccessful terms in office.

The Governors of Louisiana presents concise biographical sketches and photographs of each of the Pelican States governors, beginning with Pierre le Moyne in 1699. Twenty-nine of the photographs show the bronze bas-relief portraits of the governors that are cast on the elevator doors at the Capitol building in Baton Rouge. This updated edition includes Kathleen Blanco, the present governor and first woman elected to that office in Louisiana. The other volumes in this series, The Governors of Alabama (pb F]), The Governors of Mississippi (pb F]), The Governors of Tennessee: 2nd Edition (pb), and The Governors of Texas (pb F]), are also available from Pelican.
