James LeBoeuf was murdered on Lake Palourde outside Morgan City, LA, and in July 1927, James Beadle, Dr. Thomas Dreher and the victim's wife, Ada LeBoeuf, were tried and found guilty. Francine Middleton, a retired Ellender Memorial Library staffer, will present her research on the Dreher-LeBoeuf murder case and how newspaper coverage influenced the atmosphere surrounding the trial and quite possibly the outcome. Showcasing how libraries are still essential for historical research, Middleton relied on local, unindexed newspapers and magazines for her study.
