The UALR Center for Arkansas History and Culture holds a rich set of materials regarding the two WWII Japanese Internment Camps near Jerome and Rohwer in the Arkansas Delta. Featured in this playlist are clips created from raw footage captured for the documentary _Time of Fear_, as well as clips created for the Rohwer Restored virtual exhibit (funded by the National Park Service's Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program).
Audio and video digitized from items in the Winthop Rockefeller Collection. The collection is organized in nine record groups and includes materials on WR's life from 1912 until his death in 1973. It documents his activities before he arrived in Arkansas in 1953 and then as a public figure from 1953 until his death in 1973 and as governor from 1966-1970.
At the Center for Arkansas History and Culture, we believe that an archive acts as a portal, preserving the past for the future to access and learn from. An archive is akin to a gift the past has given the present, and the present will soon give to the future. For this year's National Archives month, we are celebrating this idea with a series of short videos showing you (the public) how the gifts we hold are processed and cared for.
