He was the first full-time lieutenant governor in state history, and in his first term, prior to implementation of the Constitution of 1974, he was the last lieutenant governor whose duties included presiding over the Louisiana State Senate.  During his tenure as Lieutenant Governor he promoted industrial development and Louisiana was among the most successful states recruiting business and industry.
