These volumes record personal property tax assessments in Crittenden County, Arkansas, 1839-1849 and 1854-1858.
Margaret Woolfolk (1917-2002) spent forty years as a journalist in Crittenden County. She took time off from her career during World War II to serve as a radio operator and link trainer for Chicago and Southern Airlines in New Orleans and Memphis. The Arkansas Press Women (APW) named Woolfolk the APW Woman of Achievement three times in her long career as a journalist and editor. She retired from journalism in 1976, to earn a Bachelor of Arts in political science at Arkansas State University in 1981, and a Juris Doctorate from Memphis State University in 1985. Woolfolk practiced law as both attorney and judge until her ill health forced her into a second retirement. A street and a public library in Marion are named for her. These ledgers were part of her personal collection that went to the Woolfolk Public Library.
