Scope and Contents Note

This collection contains seventy-six speeches delivered ca. 1850s-1890s [bulk 1890s] by Colonel James Mitchell, former editor of the Arkansas Gazette and later owner of the Arkansas Democrat. The speeches were typed on newspaper print and later bound in volumes. Due to their extreme fragility, the pages have been unbound and photocopied.


Biographical Note

James Mitchell was born 1832 May 8 in Cane Hill, Arkansas. He attended Cane Hill College, farmed, taught school in the Choctaw Nation, and was elected to the Arkansas General Assembly in 1860. In 1862, he joined the Confederate Army as a Lieutenant and served in the Trans-Mississippi Department. After the war, he returned to farming and teaching in northwest Arkansas. In 1876, Mitchell moved to Little Rock and became the editor of the Arkansas Gazette. Two years later, he left the Gazette and purchased the Arkansas Democrat. Mitchell retained control of the Democrat until his death on 1902 June 26.
