Rollicking and revealing,
Kingfish U is the definitive story of Huey Long’s embrace of LSU
“The impact of Huey Long on LSU was enormous and more complicated than most folks realize. Kingfish U is both thoroughly researched and great fun to read. Robert Mann masterfully weaves the controversies, visions, and key characters into a compelling narrative.”
—Wayne Parent, author of " the Carnival: Unmasking Louisiana Politics"
“Robert Mann has captured how Huey Long used his power and influence to build and promote Louisiana State University through its Fighting Tigers football team. Kingfish U is a must read for political types, academics, football fans, and lovers of history and great writing.”
