- This week in Louisiana history. March 17, 1791. Baron de Carondelet de Noyelles is appointed governor-general of Louisiana.
- This week in New Orleans history. According to Buddy Stall,
on March 17, 1930, the first "coffee break" in the United
States occured when the "managers of the Delta Steamship
Company, then the Mississippi Steamship Company, summoned
their 80 employees in the Hibernia Bank building and initiated
a daily 3:30 p.m. coffee recess. Company scouts had found the
custom to be very well-received in Brazil and adopted the idea
for its New Orleans office. The tradition started by the
shipping company spread like wildfire, and in a short time
completely saturated the entire metropolitan area, which only
goes to prove good news travels fast."
