Summary
"In this study, Alan R. Havig provides the history of the first one hundred years of the State Historical Society of Missouri, a state agency that counts thousands of Missouri citizens as members and touches the lives of thousands more through its programs."--BOOK JACKET. "The book's chapters are organized chronologically and coincide with the agency's chief administrators' terms of service. Focusing on the society's origins, the initial chapter discusses the work of Francis A. Sampson, the society's first paid administrator. The following two chapters are on Floyd C. Shoemaker, who served as secretary from 1915 to 1960. Chapters 4 and 5 treat the administrations of Dr. Richard S. Brownlee, director from 1960 to 1985, and Dr. James W. Goodrich, executive director from 1985 to the present."--BOOK JACKET. "Havig addresses such key topics as the growth of the society's collections; the reference library; the Western Historical Manuscript Collection; and an extensive assortment of visual art, including a famed collection of works by Thomas Hart Benton and George Caleb Bingham. Havig also examines the society's collaboration with the University of Missouri in obtaining physical space for its operations; its work with local groups in promoting special events such as Missouri's centennial in 1920-1921; the society's outstanding publications program; its role in the placement of historic markers along Missouri highways; its sponsorship of History Day; and numerous other endeavors made by the society to preserve and disseminate Missouri's rich heritage to the state's citizens."--BOOK JACKET. "A Centennial History of the State Historical Society of Missouri, 1898-1998 will be of special value to professionals working in Missouri history and in the field of state and local history."--BOOK JACKET
