Huey Long
Original name: Huey Pierce Long, Jr.
Birth: Aug. 30, 1893
Winnfield
Winn Parish
Louisiana, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1935
Baton Rouge
East Baton Rouge Parish
Louisiana, USA

Governor of Louisiana. Long was the victim of assassin Dr. Carl A. Weiss. The assassination has been surrounded by controversy. Long was critically wounded on September 8. Dr. Weiss was scheduled to perform surgery on September 9. Since Long was heavily guarded with submachine gun toting bodyguards, an assailant would have to presume his own demise via an attempt on Long's life. It was also never determined whose bullets entered Long's body. There is speculation that bullets from his bodyguards provided the mortal wounds after richocheting. Long had made some unpleasant comments about Dr. Weiss' father, a respected judge, but it is debatable that he intended to kill Long. There has been some conjecture that one of Long's bodyguards may have killed long under the influence of supporters of President Franklin Roosevelt, who perceived Long as a threat in the 1936 election. Bullet holes are still visible in the hall of the Louisiana State Capital where Long was shot. The movie "All The Kings Men," was loosely based on the story of Long's life and death.
