Ernie Dumas, 82, is one of the state's most highly regarded journalists. He spent more than 30 years with the Arkansas Gazette, primarily as a political and state government reporter. He was also an associate editor, an editorial writer and a columnist until the newspaper folded in 1991. Since then, he has continued to write for several publications, including the Arkansas Times.

His recent book -- The Education of Ernie Dumas: Chronicles of the Arkansas Political Mind -- covers the post-World War II era of Arkansas, from the election of Gov. Orval Faubus, who resisted school desegregation, to the election of Gov. Bill Clinton, who later became the nation's 42nd president.
