Edward Douglass White The Man And The Statue

In the post  below this one you can see the bottom of a statue. It is located in front of the Louisiana Supreme Court building at 400 Royal Street in New Orleans, La.
It is located directly across the street from Brennan's Restaurant one of the most famous restaurants in New Orleans.

The present Louisiana Supreme Court building opened in the French Quarter in 1910.

   I was curious about the building since I used to walk past it almost every day when we lived in New Orleans in 1965 and 1966. Now I find out it is The Louisiana Supreme Court building and the statue of the man in fron is of Edward Douglass White. See above wikipedia link for information about this most interesting man.
   The statue was put there in 1926 and was recently cleaned and restored.
