Using Missouri State University's historic collections for family research.
Monday, May 6
Using Missouri State University's historic collections for family research.  (Program)
7:00 pm
The Library Center, 4653 S. Campbell Ave, Springfield, MO, and Zoom
Anne Baker is head of Special Collections and Archives, a part of the Missouri State University Libraries. Join us as she describes resources available online and in MSU’s Meyer Library. While not focused on genealogy, the collections can help fill in the stories of your family.  If your grandmother was a co-ed at Southwest Missouri State Teachers College in the 1920s, she might be in the yearbook. If your great-uncle was among the students who went on a USO Tour in the 1960s, you can look for him in scrapbooks and theatre programs. Stepping off campus, there are newsletters, photographs, and minutes from several local labor unions; oral histories from area veterans; and photos and other documents from the local African American community. The search won’t always locate your family members but can give insight to the world your people experienced.
