Centennial History of Arkansas, three-volume set on CD
In 1922, Dallas T. Herndon, director of the Arkansas History Commission, wrote Centennial History of Arkansas, a three-volume series about the state's history and biographical sketches of Arkansas residents. Herndon's Centennial History of Arkansas has been described as the best history of the state ever written. Herndon was the first director of the Arkansas History Commission and had access to a tremendous variety of primary source materials from which to work. The three-volume set was originally published in a limited quantity in 1922, then reprinted in the mid-1970s by Southern Historical Press.
