Who was Pap Dean?

Preston Allen Dean, Jr., known as Pap Dean, was an American cartoonist who was employed from 1938 to 1979 as chief illustrator and editorial cartoonist for the Shreveport Times in Shreveport, the largest newspaper in North Louisiana. An original inductee of the Louisiana Political Museum and Hall of Fame, Dean since 1993 had prepared a caricature for the exhibit of each honoree in the museum, which is located in a former railroad depot in downtown Winnfield.

A devotee of Louisiana politics, Dean recalled that Huey Pierce Long, Jr., once bought him a hamburger while they were on the train from Baton Rouge to Nashville, Tennessee, to watch the Louisiana State University Tigers play football.
