The My Missouri Lecture Series invites prominent Missourians from all walks of life to reflect on what being a Missourian has meant to them as they speak about how the state’s history, people, and culture have shaped their experiences.
The inaugural My Missouri Lecture was presented as part of the State Historical Society's Fall Lecture Series. Claire McCaskill, former Democratic US Senator from Missouri, spoke at the Center for Missouri Studies in Columbia.
Former US Senator Claire McCaskill served as the top-ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the Armed Services Committee. Before she was elected to the Senate in 2006, McCaskill was Missouri's state auditor and served as Jackson County Prosecutor.
