Encounters with Gov. Edwards
I first met Edwin Edwards in the summer of 1975. My editor said he was tired of covering the then-governor, so he sent me, the cub reporter.
Edwards was in town to attend a fundraiser for the late Sen. Charles Barham. I caught up with the governor at the Holiday Inn, and stayed on his heels until I could no longer see the lights of his plane as it finally cleared Lincoln Parish airspace late that night.
