Biographical Note

A territory since 1819, Arkansas became the twenty-fifth state when it was admitted to the United States on June 15, 1836. While Arkansas was admitted as a "slave state," Michigan came into the Union as a "free state," although its admission was not official until 1837. Well-known Arkansas businessman and president of Arkansas Power and Light Harvey C. Couch served as chairman of the centennial committee. Arkansas' centennial celebration in 1936 was a grand occasion and included a visit by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
