Crowley’s new history book and the woman behind it

THE POST-SIGNAL / Saja Hoffpauir
A contemporary Ann Mire, in a trademark Hawaiian shirt, sits with her new book in front of one of her favorite historical spots in Crowley - the monument erected in Levy Park in memory of W.W. and C.C. Duson. Although the monument was erected in honor of the city’s 50th birthday, which occurred on Jan. 4, 1887, it was not dedicated until Oct. 5, 1937. The date coincided with the birthday of W.W. Duson and provided the perfect springboard for an annual harvest celebration - Crowley’s Rice Festival.

It’s unclear whether Ann Mire adopted Crowley or Crowley adopted Ann Mire, but either way it has been a beautiful relationship.
