Naturalization records for Arkansas are maintained by the federal district courts in Little Rock, Helena, Batesville, Fort Smith, and Texarkana. Naturalization records for 1809 to 1906 were indexed in 1942 by the Works Projects Administration (WPA; originally called the Works Progress Administration). Some World War I soldiers from throughout the Midwest who were stationed at Camp Pike during the war were naturalized in Pulaski County Circuit Court. See Desmond Walls Allen, 1918 Camp Pike, Arkansas, Index to Soldiers’ Naturalizations (Conway, Ark.: Arkansas Research, 1988).
