Historical Note

Early in the history of the University of Arkansas, news service and publicity duties were handled by instructors of journalism. J. Wainwright Evans, Murray Sheehan, J. Wymond French, and Victor Portman all served as instructors of journalism in the English department of the University and were all tasked by the president of the University with publicizing the institution. When French left the University, President Futrall hired Walter J. Lemke who was charged with organizing a department of journalism and serving as director of the University News Bureau. Lemke was the director of the bureau until that position was separated from the Department of Journalism in 1939, and Sam Schwieger was hired as director. Schwieger was also field manager for the Arkansas Press Association and ran the two organizations as one unit from 1941 until his departure in 1943. Schwieger was succeeded by William J. Good who held the position until the creation of the Division of Information Services in 1958.>
