Ethel Simpson, retired archivist with the University of Arkansas Special Collections Department, explores the life and work of Otto Ernest Rayburn, an author and educator who moved to the Ozarks in 1917, spent years amassing newspaper clippings, magazine articles, letters, and photos related to Ozark lore and life, eventually organizing his collection into a 229-volume "encyclopedia." Today the collection is housed in the Special Collections Department at the University of Arkansas's Mullins Library. Recorded April 19, 2017.
