The article presents information on the Locke Breaux Oak and the Seven Sisters Oak which became presidents of the Live Oak Society. Before the Locke Breaux Oak was named as such, it experienced several name changes including Perret Oak, Davenport Oak, and Brou Oak. When the Locke Breaux Oak died in 1967, the society searched for a new president until the Seven Sisters Oak was elected in 1968.
