 Huey P. Long FBI Files

HUEY P. LONG FBI FILES

1818 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and archived on CD-ROM covering Huey P. Long. These files contain information concerning the activities and associates of Louisiana Senator and Governor Huey "Kingfish" Long who was assassinated in Baton Rouge, La., by Dr. Carl A. Weiss in September 1935. Files document accusations against Long and his associates of various acts of corruption. After election to the U.S. Senate in 1930, he continued to control the Louisiana government from Washington through his hand-picked successor as governor.

Huey Long was Governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1930. A nominal Democrat, Huey Long was a radical populist, of a sort we are unfamiliar with in our day. As Governor, he sponsored many reforms that endeared him to the rural poor. An ardent enemy of corporate interests, he championed the "little man" against the rich and privileged. A farm boy from the piney woods of North Louisiana, he was colorful, charismatic, controversial, and always just skating on the edge. He gave himself the nickname "Kingfish" because, he said, "I'm a small fish here in Washington. But I'm the Kingfish to the folks down in Louisiana."
