Remembering Joe Purcell

Posted By on Mon, Jun 12, 2006 at 9:37 PM

A reader asks us to link this Benton Courier article about a ceremony this coming Saturday, June 24, in Benton to remember the late Joe Purcell, a three-term lieutenant governor and former attorney general who served nine days as governor after  David Pryor took early leave to take a seat in the U.S. Senate.

Done.
