Biographical/Historical Note

By 1879, the town of Lonoke was populous enough that the need for free public education had become apparent. There were only meager state funds set aside for this purpose, so to supplement them, the citizens of Lonoke privately subscribed a total of $10,000. These funds, added to the state funds, enabled them to begin a free, ten-month public school in the town.
