- This week in Louisiana history. February 21, 1882. First Mardi Gras Parade in Lake Charles takes place.
- This week in New Orleans history. Doctor Edgar Hull, Jr.
(February 20, 1904 – October 24, 1984), was a founding faculty
member of the Louisiana State University Medical Center in New
Orleans in 1931. He was among those called upon to treat Huey
P. Long after he was shot in 1935. In 1983, after nearly
a half-century, Hull published his memoirs, This I
Remember: An Informal History of the Louisiana State
University Medical Center in New Orleans. Unlike LSU
historian T. Harry Williams, who suggested Long might have
survived with better medical care, Hull said that Long could
not have survived the shooting. He denied that Long had died
from medical or surgical incompetence.
