Biographical/Historical Note

The Grand Prairie is a subregion of the Arkansas Delta, located between the bottomlands of the White River and the Arkansas River. Today, the Grand Prairie is mostly used for rice farming, but less than one percent of the original prairie remains.

The Woodward and Teirnan Printing Company was founded by William H. Woodward and Luke Tiernan in St. Louis. Woodward was born in England and immigrated to America as a young man and was later instrumental in helping to organize the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The printing company operated until the late 1950s.
