Katherine Landry and Maj. Gen. Michael Wehr

Katherine's family, the Perilloux's, have a long history with the Corps in St. Charles Parish dating back more than a century. They lost land and houses and buildings to the Corps for flood protection. In the early 1930's, her grandfather wrote a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt inviting him to visit the newly completed Spillway. The President obliged and school children lined the levee to greet him.

Great coverage of this event Coleen and a nice photo of Katherine and the general with the spillway in the background.
