Harold Duane Huddleston (1919-1982), a retired school principal of Ole Main School in North Little Rock (now North Little Rock High School West Campus), was a noted historian of 19th century steamboats on the White River, Black River, and Arkansas River. He was a past president of the Pulaski County Historical Society and the author of many historical articles appearing in the
Arkansas Gazette and several Arkansas historic quarterlies. After his death, Pat T. Wood and Sammie C. Rose published the book,
Steamboats and Ferries on the White River: A Heritage Revisited (1998), based on his research and credited Huddleston as an author.
