New Orleans in Orleans Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Site Of Higgins’ Industries at Delgado Trade School
President Dwight D. Eisenhower once referred to the company's founder, Andrew Jackson Higgins, as the "man who won the war for us." Higgins, in turn, recognized the contribution of the Delgado Trades School. He stated, "We can't use ordinary hammer and saw carpenters, but we can use Delgado men." The importance of what Andrew Higgins, the "Delgado men" and the thousands of other Higgins employees accomplished on this site in helping to secure the Allied victory shall long be remembered.
