Meet the Author


Brothers Steven and Ray Hanley are natives of Malvern. Using a wealth of archival materials, they share the colorful story of their hometown and county. Readers will learn about the historic day in 1936 when Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the community and about the evolution from dirt streets, horses, and buggies to a modern highway bringing thousands of motorists through the city. They will witness the changes that technology and growth have wrought in small-town life, a microcosm of small towns across the nation. The authors of 10 Arcadia Publishing titles, Steven and Ray Hanley are also the producers of "Arkansas Post Card Past," a daily feature appearing in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette since 1986. During the past 24 years, they have published more than 6,500 historic Arkansas photographs and the stories behind the images.
