Evenings with History – Winthrop Rockefeller: From New Yorker to Arkansawyer, 1912-1956

April 5 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Please join us for the final meeting of the History Institute’s 2021-2022 Evenings with History lecture series. Professor John Kirk will discuss his latest book “Winthrop Rockefeller: From New Yorker to Arkansawyer, 1912-1956 at the Historic Arkansas Museum” on April 4, 2022.

Why did Winthrop Rockefeller, the scion of a wealthy and influential New York family, move to an Arkansas mountaintop in the 1950s? Dr. Kirk examines the clues to this mystery, which, he argues, are threaded throughout Rockefeller’s New York life. In so doing, he casts a powerful new light on Rockefeller’s later Arkansas years.

Those who are fully vaccinated and boosted are invited to attend in person. In the interests of public health, masks are required and refreshments will not be served.

Location: Historic Arkansas Museum, 200 E 3rd Street, Little Rock, AR
Date and Time: April 4, 2022, at 7:30 p.m.
Sign up for virtual registration here.
