Bumpers' Papers Made Available To Public
The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville is announcing that the papers of former U.S. Senator Dale Bumpers are being made available to researchers.
The former Arkansas governor served in the U.S. Senate from 1975 until 1999.
Timothy Nutt, head of special collections, says the papers document the Democrat's roots in Arkansas and career in the nation's capital.
"You'll find materials of the Star Wars strategic defense initiative in 1983, the space station, environmental issues, and the Arkansas Wilderness Act of 1984. There's also materials on the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton. In addition to the senatorial materials, we have materials from his childhood in Charleston, Arkansas," says Nutt.
A guide to the collection is available online at the University of Arkansas Libraries' website.
