Historical Note

When plans were initiated for observance of the University of Arkansas centennial, it was agreed that publication of a history of the first 100 years should be a part of the observance. The Centennial Committee asked Robert Leflar, a member of the University of Arkansas class of 1922 and a Law School professor at the University since 1927, to write such a book.
