When Chet Hilburn was asked why he chose to write about Tiger Stadium, he responded, â€œEvery football fan in America has heard about the mystique of LSUâ€™s Tiger Stadium, but no one has ever written a book on it until now.â€ His passion was born when he was sixteen years old. His older brother, then a LSU student, brought him to a number of games in the stadium, and he has been fascinated ever since.
Hilburn graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a BA in history. He has more than forty years of experience as a reporter, editor, and author. His work history includes time as a police reporter for the Shreveport(LA) Journal, a reporter and design editor for the Alexandria(LA) Town Talk, a managing editor of the Camden (AK) News, and a layout editor, writer, and later national and world news editor for the Houston (TX) Chronicle. He also received a Bronze Star for his work as a journalist and combat photographer-reporter with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam.
Now retired, Hilburn focuses on writing. He lives in Houston, Texas.
