Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Algie Dee Brown was a Shreveport attorney and a Democratic member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1948-1972. He served under governors Earl Kemp Long, Robert F. Kennon, James Houston "Jimmie" Davis, and John J. McKeithen. His interest in politics began in the early 1930s when he heard the legendary Huey Pierce Long, Jr., give a stem-winding speech in Shreveport. Brown served in an at-large Caddo Parish delegation during his entire House career. By the time he declined to seek a seventh term in 1972, single-member districts were instituted in Louisiana legislative races. In the 1964 general election, Brown ran third for the five available seats but was outdistanced by GOP candidates Morley A. Hudson and Taylor W. O'Hearn. Joining Brown in the delegation were Frank Fulco and newcomer J. Bennett Johnston, Jr., later a United States senator
