    Mr. Carville: To ensure my credibility, please Google me . I don’t know if you still live on Palmer Avenue but that was my nephew Morris “Buddy” Bart’s home before he moved to Audubon Place. I have a BS from Tulane (53) and an MD from LSU (57) and trained at Charity 1958-63 in Surgery. I am writing a book which combines the biography of Professor Isidore Cohn, Jr. with the history of the LSU Department of Surgery. I am assured by Dr. Larry Hollier, Chancellor, that LSU will publish the book. That is just verbal and he has never seen the material but knows that I was Isidore’s first Chief Resident and his chosen biographer. My current choice of a title is, “Rise to Prominence – The Isidore Cohn, Jr. MD and LSU Surgical Legacy.” In the book I will have a generous reference to Dr. Paul Brand who joined the LSU Surgery Department and who is the greatest contributor to the surgical treatment of Laprosy that ever lived. As a medical student and surgery resident I Iook care of many patients from Carville. I believe it would be great to speak to you , maybe get some familty history of your Grandfather and the city/hospital. Maybe some early photos. I am 87 and hope to finish the book before I die. I have written 21 chapters and have plans for about three more chapters. I never expected LSU to publish it – planned to self-publish if necessary. I promised Isidore and his family that the book will be published, and I have tried to enhance the contents with tangential interesting material like Dr. Paul Brand and his work with the Lepers. Any interest is helping? By the way, I bleed Purple and Gold, and Black and Gold like you. It’s irrelevant but I am a big admirer of yours,; love to see you with your LSU hat on national TV. I still cry like a senile old bastard when i think about Joe Burrow and the 2019/2020 season. I live in Gulfport, MS. 924 Savannah Place 39507. (228)380-3708. When this virus thing is over, I can have my driver bring me there to meet with you. If you prefer ignoring this message, please let me know so I won’t count on hearing from you. Regards, Al Cotlar.
