A few goodies you will find include a recipe for homemade mayonnaise from Wilma Tomlinson McPhail of Judsonia, one she learned to make in home economics class at McRae High School; a recipe for Hoppin’ John from Pat Best, which should be eaten on New Year’s Day for good luck; several recipes from old Searcy Citizen newspapers; a couple from an old “Book of Desserts” by Mrs. W. H. Wilson, provided by Mrs. Mary Reynolds of North Little Rock. A few “not so cookable” recipes are included (for fun) such as “Dewey’s Elephant Stew” from Dewey Spencer of Judsonia.

INDEX – THAT’S JUDSONIA

W.E. “Skinny” Orr published this comprehensive history of the Judsonia area in 1957.  He was publisher of the local newspaper and became a charter member of the White County Historical Society, serving as president during the organization’s formative years. Mr. Orr died in 1997, and his book is now out of print and very rare.  Copies can be found in some of the White County libraries, including the Searcy Public Library. “That’s Judsonia” was printed without an index. This index was prepared in 2008 by WCHS member Mary Hale of Russell, to assist researchers and to keep alive the memory of this unique historian and his special book.
