A $1.9-million lawsuit against New Orleans' new museum of southern art has accused its founder of using taxpayer money to build a private museum on public land, sidestepping the state's conflict-of-interest laws and illegally naming it after himself. The suit, filed in Baton Rouge by five New Orleans-area residents, accuses Roger Ogden, founder of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, of using his position as a member of the LSU Board of Supervisors to influence the approval of the museum.

Books make great gifts for the holidays. It's not just that you can find one to interest almost anybody; it's also their practical value: They're easy to wrap, and easy to return. Here are some of the more notable of this season's travel-related "gift books": OKAVANGO: Africa's Last Eden by Frans Lanting (Chronicle Books, $45 hardcover). In the hands of the merely competent, a little wildlife photography can go a very long way. Dutch-born Frans Lanting is far more than competent.

Roger Houston Ogden once dreamed of being governor of Louisiana. Instead, the wealthy developer built his legacy behind the ornate doors of his white-columned, upper Audubon district mansion, where he amassed one of the largest collections of Southern art in the world. When city leaders cut the ribbon in August at the multitiered $21-million Ogden Museum of Southern Art on Camp Street, Ogden's ambition to publicly serve his native South was realized.
