In April 2009 I conducted research on the Winthrop Rockefeller Papers held at the Rockefeller Archive Center (RAC) on microfilm with the help of a grant-in-aid. My research, following on from my extensive body of previous publications on the civil rights movement in Arkansas, sought to examine the impact that Winthrop Rockefeller had on race relations in the state as governor between 1967 and 1971. The rich collection of material I discovered expanded my focus to the larger project of writing the first full-length biography of Winthrop Rockefeller. In August 2009 I trod the boards in the newly renovated suite of offices at the RAC as the first scholar-in-residence to work there.
