Huey Pierce Long Jr. (1893 – 1935), known also by the byname "The Kingfish", was an American politician who served as the 40th governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and as a United States senator from 1932 until his assassination in 1935. Long was a left-wing populist member of the Democratic Party and rose to national prominence during the Great Depression for his vocal criticism of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his New Deal, which Long deemed insufficiently radical. This biography of Senator Long was on the press the morning he died. Since it was impossible to make any changes in the text, the author added a Postscript covering Long's death.
