The Ballad Of Archie Manning

Archie Manning
Rebel Nation 1947

In 1970, a young quarterback named Archie Manning stepped onto the field at Tulane Stadium for the Sugar Bowl, and by the end of the day, he had earned the title of MVP. In this edition of the Historic New Orleans Collection’s first person narrative series, NOLA Life Stories, Manning reflects on that formative game and the many that followed.

Sarah Holtz covers local history. Her work has also aired on Houston Public Media, Northern California Public Media, KFAI, KTOO, KUNM, WCAI, WGBH, and WWOZ.
Mark Cave is an oral historian and senior curator at the Historic New Orleans Collection.
