About Neil Compton

Neil Ernest Compton was born on August 1, 1912, in Falling Springs Flats in Benton County, the son of David Compton and Ida Wilmouth.  He attended Bentonville public schools, and in 1935 completed degrees in zoology and geology at the University of Arkansas.  He married Laurene Putman in 1935; they had three children.  He enrolled at the University of Arkansas Medical School in Little Rock, graduating in 1939. His first job after completing medical school was as a county health officer in Washington and Bradley counties. He served in the United States Navy's medical corps during World War II, being stationed in Guadalcanal. After the war he returned to Benton County, where he opened a practice specializing in gynecology and obstetrics.

Compton possessed a lifelong passion for exploring and photographing the outdoors. He especially loved the Buffalo River basin area in the Ozark region in northwest Arkansas.  But in 1956 the basin was threatened with destruction when the United States Army Corps of Engineers renewed plans to build dams on the Buffalo River at Gilbert and Lone Rock. Protests by conservationists and fishermen resulted in a survey by a team from the National Park Service in October 1961 to determine if the river warranted protection as part of the National Park System. In May, 1962, Harold and Margaret Hedges of the Ozark Wilderness Waterways Club of Kansas City, Missouri, arranged for United States Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, a noted conservationist, to float the Buffalo River. Following the float, a meeting on the University of Arkansas campus on May 24, 1962, resulted in the formation of the Ozark Society, Inc., To Save the Buffalo River. Compton was elected its president. The Ozark Society launched a campaign to prevent the damming of the river which included appealing to elected officials, inviting journalists on float trips, and river cleanups. The campaign realized success when Congress passed legislation which was signed by President Richard Nixon on March 1, 1972, to create the Buffalo National River. The legislation gave the river the unique designation of the nation's first national river.

Compton's enthusiasm for the outdoors was supplemented by his interest in local history.  He served as president of the Benton County Historical Association in the 1970s. Compton retired from medical practice in 1976.  In 1982 his first book, The High Ozarks: A Vision of Eden; was published.  This was followed in 1992 by The Battle for the Buffalo River and The Buffalo River in Black and White in 1997.

His activities as a leading citizen and conservationist earned him numerous accolades. In 1963 he received the American Motors Corporation Conservation Award. The University of Arkansas awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1986, and in 1987 the National Park Service named him an honorary park ranger. In 1990 he received the first annual Teddy Roosevelt Conservation Award awarded by Congress. That year he also became the first recipient of the University of Arkansas Alumni Community Service Award. In 1992 he received the National Wildlife Federation Achievement Award and was inducted into the Arkansas Outdoor Sportsman's Hall of Fame.  In 1993 the Arkansas State Library Association honored him with its Arkansiana Award.  In 1996 the Arkansas League of Women Voters presented him with the Horizon Award. He received the Ageless Hero Award for Community Service in 1998. Compton died on February 10, 1999.

Series 3.  Images (Boxes 25-72)

Compton was an avid photographer who used the images he made to educate people about conservation. Many of his photographs of the scenic Ozarks were subsequently published in newspapers and magazines as part of the Ozark Society's campaign to save the Buffalo River. Also, he created numerous slides for use in lectures. It should be noted that not all of the photographs in this collection were taken  by Compton.  Where possible, photographs not taken by Compton are noted either on the print or in the folder title.

This series is comprised of images by Compton and others. Photographic prints are divided into subseries by both subject matter and size. Subseries 1-3 feature photographs of Compton and his family and friends; images of the Ozark Society and nature scenes; and flora including trees, shrubs and wild flowers. Subseries 4 includes images in which the specific subject remains unidentified. Subseries 5-6 contain matted oversize photographic prints and photographs used at Compton's memorial service. Subseries 7 contains slides.  Subseries 8 is comprised of negatives, and includes both 35mm and 2"x2".

Subseries 1.  Neil Compton and Others

This subseries includes pictures of Neil Compton and his family, both as a child and an adult. It also includes pictures of him with friends and in group photographs such as Bentonville High School class reunions. Also included are photographs from his first trip on the Buffalo River in the early 1930s. This subseries also includes photographs of individual people; many of these images appeared in The Battle for the Buffalo.

Subseries 2.  The Ozark Society and Natural Scenes

This subseries features scenes of Ozark Society activities as well as images of natural scenes, such as rivers, streams, waterfalls, caves and caverns, valleys, and bluffs and other rock formations. Photographs pertaining to the Ozark Wilderness Waterways Club are included under the heading of Ozark Society.  Photographs documenting the damage done to the environment by logging, the building of roads, and the creation of reservoirs are included in this subseries.  Also in this subseries are photographs of man-made structures located in the Ozark forests, especially barns, schools, churches, bridges, houses, and cabins built by early settlers. Finally, while most of these pictures were taken in northwest Arkansas, a few depict scenes from outside this region, notably in other parts of Arkansas and in Missouri and Louisiana.

Subseries 8.  Negatives

This subseries includes negatives of photographs taken by Compton.  The negatives are of two basic sizes: 35mm and 2" x 2".  They are divided first by size, and then by subject. As far as possible, subjects are arranged alphabetically; however, because of storage efficiency concerns this is not a strict rule. The file labeled "Notebook Negatives" in Box 70 contains negatives which were kept by Compton in a separate notebook; they include images with a variety of different subjects.
