Neil Ernest Compton, M.D.
Dr. Compton graduated from the University of Arkansas School of Medicine in 1939, served the U.S. Naval Reserve as a medical officer in the U.S. and abroad, and practiced obstetrics and gynecology in northwest Arkansas for decades. Compton was a nationally lauded conservationist who advocated to protect the Buffalo River from environmental threats, founded the Ozark Society, and was instrumental in having the Buffalo River of Arkansas designated by President Nixon as the first protected “national river” in the National Park System.
Spring Fling 2023
Current and soon-to-be members of the Compton Academic House enjoyed our Spring Fling party on Friday evening, April 28, which bought together faculty, staff, students (M-Zero, M1, M2, M3 and M4), significant others and many young children). Due to the wet grass and expected rain, the event was moved from nearby Wilson City Park to the NWA campus’ Baker Center.
