Abstract : Few people know the major roles played by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the domestic systems of our nation. I was impressed but not surprised by this pervasive ignorance, for the Corps of Engineers does little to direct attention to itself, normally being content to let its own works stand as its marker. I feel that the work of the Engineers is too important to be constrained within such modesty. The purpose of this history is to give the public a warm humanly inviting insight into the record of the Little Rock District of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. The history grew from personal interviews, searches of public documents found in the District library, The Congressional Record, reading old files of local newspapers (especially the Arkansas Gazette) and intimate studies of personal papers.
