Did the founder have any links with Louisiana? Was he a native Louisianan, or admired the small state so? Perhaps he was an LSU graduate? Or maybe it was in honor of a grand time had at a Mardi Gras?
No, it's for an odd reason: It turned out that the founder had been married successively to three women, all named Louise, and the museum was named in honor of his three wives!
