Senator J.W. Fulbright served the United States and the state of Arkansas in the Senate for four terms in the period after World War II. He was an astute student of American foreign policy, and he remained a "voice of calmness in the halls of congress, counseling international cooperation, the exchange of information, and support for the United Nations." The University of Arkansas's Special Collections group has created this archive of 50 of Fulbright's speeches (along with related materials) for the web-browsing public. The homepage for the collection contains a timeline of the senator's life and accomplishments, along with a bibliography of different works, and a selection of photographs. Visitors can use the "Browse the Collection" area to get a sense of Fulbright's primary passion as a legislator, and they will find transcripts of talks that include "America's Place in World Affairs" and "International Education and the Hope for a Better World".
