Richard Atkinson Speaker Series
The Richard Atkinson Speaker Series at the Clinton House Museum gives area residents the opportunity to learn about Arkansas culture, history, and politics from noted leaders in their fields.
Dick, as his friends called him, was known for his warmth, passion, and sense of humor. He was a beloved member of the University of Arkansas School of Law faculty and mentor to hundreds of students over his 30 years on the faculty. Dick originally came to Fayetteville in 1975 at the urging of his Yale University law school friends, Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham, who were both on the law school faculty at that time.
Once in Arkansas, Dick fell in love with the region and its people. The series is named after him to honor his long-time friendship with the Clintons, his commitment to the community, and his love of art, culture, and politics.
