NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Papers from Huey P. Long's personal office and files are among the highlights of the Jack B. McGuire Collection of Huey P. Long Papers recently donated to the Louisiana Research Collection at Tulane University, where Long attended law school in 1914.

The collection includes speech drafts; Long's agreement with the Old Regulars political organization and Standard Oil; papers on his Share Our Wealth program; and dossiers on his enemies.

There also are original illustrations for his autobiography with captions in his handwriting; documents showing that he always intended to name the Huey P. Long bridge after himself; documents relating to the Win or Lose Oil Company.

Officials say the university now holds one of the most important collections of papers related to Long.
