Biographical Note

Written in response by conservative Democratic “redeemers” to Arkansas’s pro-Union Reconstruction era constitution, the Constitution of 1874 remains in effect to this date. Efforts in the 1880s as well as a constitutional convention in 1917-1918 failed to replace this constitution. Another attempt was initiated in 1967 when the state legislature voted to create the Constitution Revision Study Commission. The study resulted in a constitutional convention convening in 1969-1970. Dr. Robert A. Leflar of the University of Arkansas law school was unanimously elected to serve as the convention’s president. The 100 delegates focused on three issues: state usury laws, the “right to work,” and voting age. However, the resulting new constitution was defeated overwhelmingly by voters in 1970, with 57 percent against the measure. Subsequent efforts to replace the 1874 constitution, including a convention in 1979-1980, also failed.
