LSU Cane Workers - early 1930's
Established in 1860, LSU moved from the old Pentagon Barracks in 1926 to its present campus. The campus was dedicated on April 30, 1926. When Huey P. Long was elected governor in 1928, he launched a major building program that continued through the 1930's. Through the efforts of Thomas Boyd, the university purchased Gartness Plantation, south of downtown Baton Rouge. These cane field workers are taking a break near what is now the veterinarian school.
