Event Description:
The Pryor Center Presents lecture series continues this summer with veteran journalist and political observer Ernie Dumas as he talks about his memoir "The Education of Ernie Dumas: Chronicles of the Arkansas Political Mind” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, at the The David and Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. This book collects the mostly untold stories, often deeply personal, that reveal the inner struggles and sometimes the tribulations of the state's leaders—Cherry, Faubus, Winthrop Rockefeller, Dale Bumpers, David Pryor, John McClellan, J. William Fulbright, Bill Clinton, Jim Guy Tucker, Hillary Clinton, and others.

Dumas has written about politics for more than 60 years beginning in 1954 at the El Dorado Daily News and Evening Times. He was a political and state government reporter and an associate editor, editorial writer, and columnist for the Arkansas Gazette until it closed in 1991. Dumas continues to write for numerous state and national outlets, including the Arkansas Times. He has been an author or collaborator on several books, including The Clintons of Arkansas, Waiting for the Cemetery Vote, and Dearest Letty. 

The Pryor Center is located at 1 East Center Street, Suite 120, and parking is available on the Fayetteville Square. The event is free and open to the public. Nightbird Books will have copies of Dumas's memoir for sale that evening.
