Lafayette Gazette newspaper
On Friday, September 5, 2014, members of the Mouton family will donate their original publisher copies of The Lafayette Gazette newspaper to the Archives of Edith Garland Dupré Library. The event will take place in the Jefferson Caffery Reading Room on the third floor of the Library at 10:00 a.m.
The Lafayette Gazette was established in 1893. It represented a faction of the Democratic Party that was opposed to the Democratic Party views of the Lafayette Advertiser. The Gazette was a weekly Saturday newspaper printed from 1893 to 1908, at which time it merged with the Lafayette Advertiser. The first publishers were Charles A. Thomas and Homer J. Mouton.
The original bound volumes were kept intact by Jeanne Mouton Jeanmard and William H. Mouton, descendants of Jerome Mouton, brother of Homer J. Mouton. The presentation is being made by their children in their honor.
