1868, Gottheil, Report on the Paris Exposition of 1867
Report of Edward Gottheil, Chief Commissioner and general agent from the State of Louisiana to the Paris Universal Exposition of 1867, made to the
Governor and the General Assembly. Session of 1868. New Orleans : A.L. Lee, 1868. Napoleon III extended an invitation to the governments of the world
to represent their countries at the Exposition. Many local citizens put together an exhibit and 55 exhibitors contributed products, but the
Louisiana Senate refused to fund Mr. Gottheil and the state's exhibit. A little public money was raised and he went anyway. He had quite a bit of trouble
placing the state's exhibit, but once it was in place, it was a big hit. The exhibit and several of the state's exhibited products won 18 medals.
Gottheil noted in his August 15, 1868 report that virtually no one in Europe knew anything about Louisiana and thought the government might consider a
roving agent in those countries. Overall, the Exposition was a huge success.
