Edgerton L. Bubba Henry (born February 10, 1936) is a Baton Rouge attorney, lobbyist, and partner of the high-powered firm Adams and Reese who served as a Democrat in the House of Representatives from 1968-1980. He was Speaker from 1972-1980. Henry was Governor Edwin Washington Edwardss choice for Speaker. Though he was considered reform-minded, some conservatives still questioned Henrys commitment to reform. In 1979, Henry finished in a weak fifth place in the jungle primary in his bid to succeed Edwards as governor. Thereafter, he was commissioner of administration for the new governor, Republican David C. Treen, then of Jefferson Parish. After Treen left office, Henry retired from elective and appointive office to concentrate on his law practice and lobbying activities. He joined Adams and Reese in 1987. One of his major clients is State Farm Insurance.
