Biographical Information

Medora Sifford (1930-2007) of Camden, Arkansas, married Walter Clark Jennings (1921- ) of Little Rock, Arkansas, on December 4, 1954. The couple was active in Little Rock social life. Walter Jennings was a business leader as president of Jennings Motors and later a banking consultant at Union Bank. Medora's family had maintained historic items (mostly newspaper clippings) of Camden history which she brought with her to Little Rock. One of the more interesting items in this collection is a scrapbook of photographs taken when Walter's mother, Irma Jennings, visited him at Camp Robinson in 1942.
