Pea Ridge Pod

The Pea Ridge Pod was a newspaper established in Pea Ridge, Arkansas in 1913 by William F. Peck (1860-1930). Though the newspaper's publishing schedule, whether it was weekly, biweekly, or monthly, is undetermined, it was typically only a few pages in size, as the local population at the time was only a few hundred people. But despite its humble circumstances, the Pea Ridge Pod gained national prominence due to its witty and folksy take on rural life. Along with praise for the publication's whimsical name, copy from its pages would go on to be highlighted in publications across the nation, including The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, Atlanta Constitution, and Oakland Tribune.
