Few anthropology papers were presented at the Annual Meetings of the Arkansas Academy of Science before 1968. Establishment of the Arkansas Archeological Survey in 1967 brought an influx of professional anthropologists to the state and a subsequent increase in the number of anthropology papers published. However, the growth in number of active anthropologists has created a need for more information channels within the state. The time is right for the Anthropology Section of the Academy to become a formal base for interaction and information dissemination among anthropologists.
