Timeline

1922 - In the year that Frank Meeks was born, on James Joyce's 40th birthday, his book Ulysses was published in France. The book covers the experiences of an Irishman in Dublin on an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Now considered a classic, it was controversial at the time. Due to some sexual content, the book was banned in the U.S. during the 1920's and the U.S. Post Office destroyed 500 copies of the novel.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).
