Manuscript Resources on the Long Family

One of Louisiana's strongest traditions is its love of politics. Always colorful, sometimes controversial, the state's political heritage is a rich one. The Long family has been synonymous with Louisiana politics since 1918, with Huey P. Long's election that year to the state's Railroad Commission (now known as the Louisiana Public Service Commission). Since that time, Long and his family have left a significant mark on state and national politics.

This guide includes manuscript resources by or about various members of the Long family. Major collections include papers of Huey Long (governor 1928-1931, U.S. senator 1932-1935); his brother, Earl K. Long (acting governor 1939-1940, governor 1948-1952, 1956-1960); Huey Long's son, Russell B. Long (U.S. senator 1948-1986); and Russell Long's third cousin, Gillis W. Long (U.S. congressman 1963-1965, 1973-1985). Other significant collections contain papers of Carolyn Bason Long (wife of Russell B. Long) and Cathy Long (U.S. congresswoman 1985-1987, wife of Gillis Long). Some papers of Rose McConnell Long (U.S. senator 1936-1937, wife of Huey Long) can be found in the Russell B. Long collection. The various collections include correspondence, speeches, interviews, scrapbooks, photographs, memorabilia, films, videotapes, and other materials.

Collections in this guide are listed alphabetically. Some headings are entered under creator and others under title, necessitating looking for personal names in two places (for example, Long, Huey Pierce and Huey P. Long). The biographical information is shown only in the first instance of a heading. Brief descriptions include references to sources for additional information--either the LSU Libraries online catalog or the manuscript card catalog in the Special Collections reading room of Hill Memorial Library.

Additional information on some of these collections can be found in detailed finding aids in the reading room. Increasingly, these finding aids can be found on the Special Collections Web site (where researchers can also find information about using the collections), on the LSU Libraries' catalog, and by asking us questions. An electronic version of this guide also appears in the Special Collections Web site, in the section on Publications.
