About the Author

Clare D'Artois Leeper (1932—2012) wrote the newspaper column "Louisiana Places: Those Strange Sounding Names" from 1960 to 1979, and again from 2004 to 2006. Born in Shreveport, she spent most of her life in Baton Rouge, named for the "red stick" that marked the hunting boundaries of the Bayougoulas and the Houmas.
