Elmer E. Lyon, School System Leader

 In October of 1911, Elmer E. Lyon was appointed Superintendent of Schools for St. Tammany Parish. 

In the March, 1958, edition of "The Boardman," a publication of the Louisiana School Boards Association, an article spotlighted the work of Elmer Eugene Lyon, a pioneer in early education efforts in St. Tammany Parish, and superintendent of the public school system for many years. 

Here is the article, written by Mrs. J. Louis Smith. Click on the image below for a larger, more readable version.
