John Julian McKeithen

"I wasn't born to material wealth, nor do I have claim to an aristocratic name. But if I am elected governor, it will prove that any mother's son can aspire to the highest political office of this state. I've come this far because you the people have given me your support - with all the professional politicians, power brokers, and big money people fighting me every step of the way. Because I owe you so much, you can be assured when I raise my hand to take the oath of office as Governor of Louisiana, there will be a prayer in my heart that God will always guide me to do what is best for the state and all the people in it. We'll win this race, but I need your help. Won't you help me?"

McKeithen on the Campaign Trail in 1964

Cherished Grandmother



AN EXCELLENT WIFE AND MOTHER. HER WORTH IS FAR ABOVE JEWELS. THE HEART OF HER HUSBAND TRUSTS IN HER AND HE WILL HAVE NO LACK OF GAIN. SHE DOES HIM GOOD AND NOT EVIL ALL THE DAYS OF HER LIFE. SHE WORKS WITH HER HANDS IN DELIGHT, STRENGTH AND DIGNITY ARE HER CLOTHING. SHE LOOKS WELL TO THE WAYS OF HER HOUSEHOLD AND DOES NOT EAT THE BREAD OF IDLENESS. HER CHILDREN RISE UP AND CALL HER BLESSED. CHARM IS DECEITFUL AND BEAUTY IS VAIN, BUT A WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD SHE SHALL BE PRAISED GIVE HER THE PRODUCT OF HER HANDS AND LET HER WORKS PRAISE HER AT THE GATES. Proverbs 31








Jesse Jay McKeithen
