Who was Cecil R. Blair?

Cecil Ray Blair was a Rapides Parish farmer and businessman who was a Democratic member of both houses of the Louisiana State Legislature during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. He served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1952 to 1956. His service in the Louisiana State Senate came in two segments, 1960–1964 and 1966-1976.

He lived, first, in the Paradise Community north of the Red River in northern Rapides Parish and, later, on Jackson Street Extension in Alexandria. He is most associated, however, with his farm near Lecompte, a community located south of Alexandria, the Rapides Parish seat of government and the largest city in central Louisiana.
