Mann, Woodrow Wilson, 1916-2002


Mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas during the integration of Central High School in 1957. Mann asked the federal government for assistance, and President Eisenhower issued Executive Order 10730, sending units of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division to Little Rock and federalizing the Arkansas National Guard. These U.S. Army troops escorted the "Little Rock Nine," as they became known, into Central High School on September 25, 1957.
