Betty Bumpers Champion of Childhood Immunization and Peace Press Reviews

In Betty Bumpers: Champion of Childhood Immunization and Peace, editors Anna L. Eblen and Martha Jane Eblen bring together Bumpers's own words, transcribed from speeches, writings, and interviews, and reminiscences of Bumper by those who worked with her. What emerges is the portrait of a remarkable woman whose story, the editors note in their preface, `has spanned almost a century-from a childhood in the rural Arkansas Dust Bowl to adulthood in the DC Beltway's halls of power to elder years back in Little Rock, Arkansas. . . .Betty Bumpers blazed the trail for other women, including another former Arkansas First Lady, Hillary Clinton. . . .[Betty's] compelling story as a political wife who transcended the boundaries of her time and role deserves to be told. . . .Strong-willed and determined, she accomplished what she set out to do [and] the Eblens' slim volume pays tribute. * Journal of American Culture *
