Behind the Scenes

We wanted to share some pictures of some of the work we do behind the scenes.  In the below photographs, one of our archival assistants, Crystal Shurley, is processing the Steve Carrigan collection.  Carrigan was a well-known attorney in central Arkansas.  Crystal noted that some of the most interesting parts of the collection are several rare books, including "The Aftermath of the Civil War in Arkansas" by Governor Powell Clayton, "Birds of America" by John James Audubon and a book written by Clarence Darrow, perhaps best known for his role in the Scopes Monkey Trial.
