Meet the Author

Images of America: Baton Rouge showcases images from the extensive resources of the Louisiana State University Libraries and the State Library of Louisiana. The book features the work of Baton Rouge's most famous photographers: Andrew Lytle, remembered for his poignant Civil War images of a town struggling to survive; Fonville Winans, known for his pictures of the growing city taken as he piloted his small plane above it; and David King Gleason, who captured the triumphs and tragedies of life in the river city. Coauthors Sylvia Frank Rodrigue and Faye Phillips have also written Historic Baton Rouge: An Illustrated History. Rodrigue is an editorial consultant, and Phillips is associate dean of libraries at Louisiana State University.
