The Fort Smith Historical Society Journal Volume 47, No. 1, April 2023

The Fort Smith Historical Journal is in the mail today…and it’s a good one. I had the pleasure of doing a piece on Fort Smith legend Carolyn Joyce. Not only is her story compelling, but it is also a joyful journey.

Other great articles include:

—Memoriam for Bob Worley,

—“Task Performed by the Organization:German POWs at Chaffee” by Jerry Akins and Sue Robison —“Bobby Crabtree: True Grit Fighter” by Sammy Jackson

—Reprint: “Bobby Crabtree:You Don’t Kick a Man When He’s Down” by Robert Mladinich

—“An Appreciation of Sue and Floyd Robison” by Caroline Speir and Bill Word
