Biographical Note

J. N. Heiskell (1872-1972), bought the Arkansas Gazette in 1902 along with his brother and father and continued as its owner and editor for seventy years. While the Gazette was Heiskell's central focus, he was also very active in establishing and maintaining the Little Rock Public Library.

He also served on many other boards and commissions including the Civil Service Commission, and the State and Pulaski County Planning Boards. In addition to the two Pulitzer Prizes awarded to the Gazette and Harry Ashmore in 1958, Heiskell personally received many honors and awards for his work during the Little Rock school crisis in 1957 including awards from Colby College in Maine, Syracuse University, Columbia University, University of Missouri, and the John Peter Zenger Award from the University of Arizona.
