BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

 

Tyler Bridges graduated from Stanford University with a degree in political science.  Throughout the 1980s he worked as a reporter, freelancing in South America for the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and others.  He has also written for George, the New Republic, and the Washington Monthly.

 

From 1989-1996, he was a reporter for the Times-Picayune (New Orleans, La.), during which time he reported on David Duke’s politics and his involvement with the Ku Klux Klan.  This eventually led to Bridges’s first book, The Rise of David Duke (1994).

 

Bridges is currently the Lima bureau chief for the Miami Herald, where he has been part of a team that won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting and the 2001 for deadline reporting.

 

He covered the legalization of gambling in Louisiana from 1992-96 for the Times-Picayune, and eventually wrote the book Bad Bet on the Bayou: the Rise of Gambling in Louisiana, and the Fall of Governor Edwin Edwards; it took five years to pen.  He conducted interviews of more than 100 people and reviewed thousands of articles and documents in order to accurately represent events.

 

Bad Bet on the Bayou tells the story of gambling legalization in a comprehensive way, beginning with an account of the history of Louisiana gambling, and concluding with the last third of the book illuminating the investigation and trial of Edwards. 

 

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

 

The topic of Bridge’s research for Bad Bet on the Bayou was the political corruption involved with gambling in Louisiana and the involvement of Governor Edwin Edwards and his associates.  Therefore, the files Bridges accumulated cover the participants, events, legal evidence, and history that led up to legalized gambling in Louisiana in the 1990’s and the eventual fall of Governor Edwards. 

 

Most items are dated in the 1990s, although some date into the 1970s, 1980s, and 2000.   Documents consist of photocopied news articles, correspondence, legal evidence, phone and wire taping transcripts, court papers, and witness testimony.  Included are video and audio cassettes containing relevant programming, interviews, or witness testimony.   Many of the news articles come from the Baton Rouge Advocate and Times Picayune, including Bridges’ own work, but other local and national news contributed to his research.  Some correspondence is written to Bridges, some among the subjects of his research. Not all correspondence is original; much of it consists of photocopies.  Legal evidence includes affidavits in support of applications for search warrants, examination of witnesses for federal bankruptcy trials and the United States vs. Sebastian Salvatore et al; and transcripts of telephone conversations that either take place at Frank’s Deli, or involve the 15th Riverboat License Scheme.  Video and audio cassettes include more research in the form of taped interviews and news coverage of Louisiana gambling, riverboats, casinos, Edward’s trial coverage, and those involved with the gambling scandal.

SERIES DESCRIPTION

 

Series I.                         Topical files, 1882-2001 (11.5 linear feet)

 

Because these were working files for the research conducted by Tyler Bridges in the writing of his book, Bad Bet on the Bayou, the contents of these folders were not relabeled or reorganized, other than to make sure the contents for each subject were arranged chronologically.  Materials contained in these files consist of photocopies of newspaper articles written by Tyler Bridges, printouts of Times Picayune news articles (as well as other local and national media), Senate bills, and correspondence to Tyler Bridges and those featured within his book, with the majority of items being the media coverage.

 

Information in this series pertains to the involvement of Marty Chabert, Harry F. Connick, Sherman Copelin, Jimmy Davis, Edward J. Debartolo, Candy Edwards, Governor Edwin Edwards and his children, Cleo Fields, Governors Mike and Murphy Foster, Jerry Fowler, Wendall H. Gauthier, Chris Hemmeter, Richard Ieyoub, Eddie Jordon, Carlos Marcello, Gus Mijalis, Daniel P. Robinowitz, Louis Roussel III and others.  Although the overall focus of the materials involves statewide gambling in Louisiana, the topical files contain concentrated information on development of casinos, efforts for a land based casino in New Orleans, in which Harrah’s finally emerged the winner; video gaming, history of the Louisiana lottery, the Edwin Edwards trial, Capitol Gaming International, the Gambling Control Board, and the Riverboat Gaming Commission.

 

The files labeled “Edwin Edwards” are a sizeable subject and contain articles from numerous news organizations that cover the corruption investigations in general, interviews, and information pre and post trial.  Included is a copy of the 1998 federal indictment against Edwin Edwards et al for violations of the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act, etc., and a folder of “Investigation Documents” that contains a copy of the federal indictment of Cecil Brown, James Fred Hofheinz, and Guy Thompson.  The files specifically for the Trial (2000) are comprised of news coverage and are over one linear foot. 

 

Files labeled “Gambling” are primarily for the year 1996 and include media coverage of the gambling situation in Louisiana at that time.  Files also exist with a much broader date range that provide a history of gambling in Louisiana. Similarly with the Riverboat files, which were primarily composed during 1994-1995. 

 

Some items were organized by Bridges according to what book chapter they pertain, although a chapter labeled “A House of Cards” does not appear in the finished book.

 

There is one oversize folder containing photocopies of the Times-Picayune index for the years 1992-1996, covering the topics of “Tyler Bridges” and “Casinos”.

 

Please see the Container List for a thorough listing of all the topical files included within this series.
