Biographical/Historical Note

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