E. Clark Gaudin received his bachelor's degree from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge in 1952 and went on to graduate from the Louisiana State University Law Center with a Juris Doctor degree in 1958 after serving in the United States Army Artillery as a second lieutenant on an ROTC commission.
Mr. Gaudin, a former Louisiana State Representative, served for twenty-one years in the Louisiana House of Representatives (1967-1968; 1972-1992) as the first Republican member from East Baton Rouge Parish in the 20th century. As an avid supporter of state workers and advocate for business in Louisiana, Mr. Gaudin was among a few legislators who supported a state right-to-work law that he believed would encourage economic growth by allowing workers the choice of whether or not to join a union. He also worked with other legislators during his time as a State Representative to eliminate the Louisiana Milk Commission, which he contended was responsible for keeping milk prices artificially high.
