A home movie that captures the arrival of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne at Central High, their escort of the Little Rock Nine into Central High School and other scenes from the crisis, can be viewed online starting tomorrow at the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, www.encyclopediaofarkansas.com. The Butler Center for Arkansas Studies received the home movie from a donor who's asked to remain anonymous during its Home Movie Day event to preserve film. The Butler Center digitizes film of everyday life in Arkansas. In a news release, Movie Day head David Stricklin said "these may be some of the most important amateur home movies ever shot in Arkansas."
