LSU -- Mike in his Cage, December 4, 1954

This is Mike I, the original LSU Tiger mascot. Although both Allison and his daughter Elizabeth were graduates of Tulane, Lucie enrolled at LSU in 1934. Perhaps they were visiting her old campus when Dad snapped this photograph. Mike I, by the way, was nineteen years old at the time; he died in 1956. Itís Mike VI who is now roaring at LSU home football games.
