Biographical Note

The First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Little Rock was founded in 1933 in Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1982, it began a series of mergers with other Arkansas banks, and in 1983 it was renamed First Federal Savings of Arkansas, F.A.; it ceased operations in 1991.

In 1980, the bank commissioned Geoff Winningham, a Houston, Texas-based photographer, to photograph examples of vernacular architecture around Arkansas. The commission resulted in a photographic essay and a portfolio, Of the Soil: Six Classics of Arkansas' Vernacular Architecture, Photographs by Geoff Winningham.
