    Some pics from the 1946 yearbook that were recently posted in Facebook....notice there isn't any Dupre library yet. I don't know what the circle is in its place....

    This is a really neat one: the corner of St Mary & Rex....you can clearly see McNaspy in the background.

    I wonder what you could have got for $1 at hamburger harbor in 1946.

    You would have gotten a lot of change back. Hamburgers were $.15 and coke $.05.

    This is cool stuff. Lots of development has occurred in the last 70 years in the area behind the McNaspy home side and around McNaspy itself.

    Billeaud, Montgomery, Dupre, Madison, Rougeou, Griffin, Oliver, new parking tower/new Stokes, Fletcher and then Wharton across WSM from Billeaud. As an engineering grad I spent much of my time (except for in Maxim and Broussard) in this "newer" part of campus.

    EDIT: also no conference center!

    LOL....really, because when I was a kid in the 60's the burger chef prices were well under a dollar then, so you can imagine what they were in the late 40's-early 50's. Anyone remember the burger chef prices? Seems to me the low prices were a prominent part of the advertisement....like a coke, burger and fries for .50......something like that. Not sure, as those were the glory days when someone else was paying my food bills, ;-)

    I remember Burger Chef burgers @ 19 cents, and that was not 100% ground beef in those days. I'll keep private what the ingredients were ... they were a little more juicy than the McDonalds of today.

    The franchise was owned by Louis Michot.

    I got a real kick out of the Mad Men episodes surrounding the pitch to Burger Chef. Brought back memories.

    But not before private branding to Mr. Cook

    PS I thought Burger Tyme was owned by the Moody family.
