Wednesday's Wonderful Collection - Arkansas soil conservation districts records, MS.000481

On April 27, 1935, the Soil Conservation Service (which became the Natural Resources Conservation Service), was created. The federal legislation declared that soil erosion was a menace to the national welfare and authorized broad powers to the new agency to attack the problem.
On February 27, 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt transmitted a law regarding standard state soil conservation districts to state governors. He recommended each state pass the law. Arkansas passed the first such law on March 3, 1937.
By the end of 1939 three thousand districts encompassing eighty-eight million acres nationwide, along with state associations and the National Association of Conservation Districts, united to support conservation by purchasing needed equipment and supplies. They also influenced legislation and regulation at the state level.
Arkansas's first soil conservation district, Mine Creek in Howard County, was created in 1937. J.W. Sargent was state coordinator, a position under the authority of the United States Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service, located in Little Rock, Arkansas. A total of fifty soil conservation districts were formed in Arkansas.
This collection contains the records of Arkansas's fifty soil conservation districts. While the records vary for each of the districts, minimally they include general correspondence, petitions for creation of districts, notices of hearing and determination of need for organization of the district.
