Allison Ray Kolb was the Democratic auditor of Louisiana from 1952 to 1956, who angered many local officials in the pursuit of his job duties and was hence defeated by former Lieutenant Governor William J. "Bill" Dodd in the 1956 party primary. While he was a Democrat, Kolb was a part of the anti-Long faction in Louisiana politics. On February 6, 1968, Kolb sought a political comeback as the Republican Party nominee in a race to succeed retiring State Treasurer Andrew Patrick "Pat" Tugwell, Sr., a part of the Long faction. Kolb was overwhelmed in the general election by Democrat Mary Evelyn Dickerson Parker, an Allen Parish native and an operative from the administrations of both former Governors Earl Kemp Long and John J. McKeithen.
