Title: Higgins Industries

For nearly thirty years, the boat building company founded by Andrew Jackson Higgins was an important fixture in New Orleans. Higgins specialized in shallow-draft boats suitable to the bayous of Louisiana. With World War II that reputation enabled Higgins Industries to become one of the largest manufacturers of U. S. naval combat boats during World War II.
