Biographical Note

Rebecca Newth Harrison is a Fayetteville, Arkansas-based writer, as well as a former public radio host. Her publications include Finding the Lamb, Milk Horses, and The Pass Key.

Scope and Content Note

“Arkansas Voices” was a series of interviews conducted by Newth for Fayetteville radio station KUAF between 1991 and 1998. Subjects were generally people who were visiting Fayetteville to lecture, perform, or exhibit their works. Other interviews with local academics concerned books they had published or other research or creative activity in which they were engaged. Newth herself was interviewed by Kyle Kellams of the KUAF staff.

The collection consists of Newth's audiocassette tape recordings of the interviews, as well as compact disc (CD) copies made by University of Arkansas Libraries staff.
