"The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture Project arose from the need for a comprehensive and reliable reference work on Arkansas. Tom Dillard, then curator at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, and Tim Nutt, then deputy curator, began planning the Encyclopedia in late 2002. They enlisted the help of Jill Curran to explore the possibility of creating an encyclopedia for the state.
The Encyclopedia had been conceived from the beginning as an inclusive and cooperative effort of historical organizations, state agencies, and interested individuals across the state and beyond...
The Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture debuted to the public in May 2006, as a work in progress... The site also includes more than 2,300 entries and 3,000 pieces of media."
