Would it be possible to post or link to the earlier article, too? And could you explain more about the history of the LR Daily Republican? Obviously it's not the Democrat or the Gazette... Thanks!

Thanks for that suggestion. We've updated the note with more information about the Daily Republican, including the original note about James McGahee as well as reports about two other African American students who were reported to have been appointed beneficiaries of the Arkansas Industrial University.


Thanks! Things become clearer, although now I wonder what Episcopal ministry he was studying for. I've found no sign of one in Woodruff County (unless it was AME?). The one in Newport (founded 1879 apparently as a spin-off from one in Jacksonport) appears to be the nearest today.

University Buildings

  • Senior Walk
    The first history of the University of Arkansas included more than a dozen photos of the campus as it appeared just after the turn of the century. Most of the buildings are no longer standing, and nearly all of those that do remain are used in new capacities.
