Images of the Month Gallery
June 2000

Stephen Ambrose has told us of Dwight D. Eisenhower's belief that Andrew Jackson Higgins was the man who won World War II for the Allies. The headline above shows that Higgins was confident of the war's outcome, and of his company's role in it, months before the Normandy invasion began! As the opening of the National D-Day Museum approaches, we take this opportunity to honor Higgins, his company, and the thousands of New Orleanians who worked so hard to make it all happen.

All of the images in this month's gallery are from the Higgins Eureka News Bulletin, an absolutely wonderful publication that gives us an inside look at what the company meant to the Crescent City--and to the world.

Click on the images below to see a larger version of the photograph and a brief description of what it shows.

"After you've seen finished viewing our gallery, be sure to visit the National D-Day Museum web site for more on Higgins and the role of New Orleans in World War II! See also The Higgins Boat Project the project that built the Higgins boat now on display at the Museum!
