Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Harvey Parnell papers, MS.000629

Harvey Parnell (1880-1936) served as Governor of Arkansas from 1928-1933. He was born near Orlando, Cleveland County, Arkansas. Parnell was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives from Chicot County in 1919, and to the State Senate representing Chicot and Ashley counties in 1923. In November of 1926, he was the elected Lieutenant Governor in Arkansas, then became governor in 1928 following John E. Martineau's appointment as United States District Judge, and the next year was elected to the first of his two terms. In 1931, Parnell appointed Hattie Caraway to fill the United States Senate seat of her late husband, Thaddeus Caraway. Hattie later became the first woman elected to the United States Senate and served from 1932 to 1945.
Parnell's term covered the first critical years of the Great Depression, and his administration worked with the federal government and other relief agencies to help the people of the state in agricultural, educational, and other matters relating to the economic depression. Parnell was seen as a progressive Democrat, who had both a business and an agricultural background. He supported the cigarette-tax law that helped to found public schools in Arkansas in order to bring in more manufacturing companies. He was clear in his belief that all manufacturing business where being generated in states with good public school systems.
