Dean and Marjorie, Mardi Gras, 1926

Marjorie is identified in another photograph as Marjorie Andrews. It is almost certain that the young boy shown here is Dean Andrews, Marjorie’s brother and later a local attorney (he served for a few years as an Assistant District Attorney in Jefferson Parish). In 1965 he organized the International Jazz Festival of New Orleans, five years before the birth of the present-day New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Dean Andrews made an even bigger name for himself a couple of years later when he managed to get businessman Clay Shaw embroiled in Jim Garrison’s investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Andrews died in April 1981.
