Huey Long, American politician, early 1930s. Known as the 'Louisiana Kingfish', Huey Pierce Long, Jr, (1893-1935) served as Governor of Louisiana from 1928-1932 and as a US Senator representing the state from 1932 until his death. A Democrat, he created the Share Our Wealth program in 1934, with the motto 'Every Man a King', which was intended to redistribute wealth to try to alleviate the poverty and crime caused by the Great Depression. He was also an advocate of spending federal income on public works and social programmes to stimulate the economy. A popular, figure, he was shot and killed at the Louisiana state capitol in Baton Rouge on 8 September 1935. It is uncertain whether he was assassinated or was accidentally shot by his own bodyguards who were trying to prevent what they believed was an assassination attempt.
