Carla Killough McClafferty recounted the project of a group of historians and scientists from George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate who set out in 2005 to better understand what George Washington looked like at different moments in his life. They created life models of George Washington as a young man of 19, Revolutionary War commander at 45, and as the first president at 57. She showed slides during her presentation and responded to questions from members of the audience in the Darragh Center Auditorium of the Central Arkansas Library System at a community event to kick-off the LCV tour of Little Rock.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Little Rock, Arkansas, on March 5-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
