Memorial Hall (formerly called Futrall Memorial Hall) was originally the Student Union on campus and was named for John C. Futrall. John C. Futrall was a professor of ancient languages (Latin and Greek) from 1894-1913 and the University of Arkansas President from 1913-1939.

On verso: The Student Union Building on the Main Campus of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville houses four important parts of student life. All phases of student government are contained in the building; many students, staff and faculty members eat in its cafeteria or lunchroom; its bookstore sells all the books and most of the supplies bought by 6,000 or more students each school year; and its ballroom and private dining room are the scene of most of the important student functions annually. The Union's barber shop and billiard room are busy every day, and the Division of Student Affairs occupies a large suite of offices. C.R.
