When Presidents Visited Arkansas

James McDaniel
Ticket to the President’s Ball in honor of Harry S. Truman’s visit to Little Rock for the dedication of War Memorial Park and an army division reunion.";s:

Presidents since at least Ulysses S. Grant have paid visits to Arkansas. While there is no recording of President Grant's trip, we do have archives of presidential visits from as far back as Harry Truman. Randy Dixon, with the David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History, takes us back to seven different presidential visits.
