|This web site contains a photographic record of the lectures,
events, and people involved in the first Arkansas History Institute.
In addition to the events chronicled, teaching resource materials
provided to Institute participants are also reproduced. Where
feasible, these resources have been enhanced by hyperlinking them
to additional resources. The hope is that in addition to being
a "piece of history", this site will continue to provide
resources for Arkansas' history teachers.
