93.  We interview actor Lance E. Nichols.  Lance is originally from New Orleans, and he has returned to his home city to pursue his acting career here.  Louisianans best know him from his role on Treme as Dr. Larry Williams, the husband to actress Khandi Alexander's character LaDonna.  Lance is a working actor with over 130 credits in film, television and theater. His other memorable roles include the faith healing preacher in The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, D.A. Jeremiah Goodhusband in Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans, Hamilton Watkins in the film Welcome To The Rileys, and Gene Clancy in the Netflix series House of Cards.

    The Odd Fellows Rest Cemetary dedicated.  The land for this cemetery was purchased by the Grand Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a benevolent society, in 1847. The property at 5055 Canal Street, adjoining St. Patrick Cemetery No. 2 at the intersection of Canal Street and Metairie Road (now City Park Avenue), was purchased for $700 and later enlarged by donations of land from benefactors and the Firemen’s Charitable Association. It is fortunate to be situated above the flood plane and has escaped several floods over its history. In 1849, the new cemetery was dedicated with a large ceremony and a grand procession which bore the cemeteries first 16 remains of former Odd Fellows members, relocated from other cemeteries.
