SHSMO Virtual Event Calendar Now Available, Featuring FREE Programs

We are diligently working from home to provide a range of events and resources, and we look forward to connecting with you through these free programs.

We have resources to aid in your research and strategies for developing your own personal archives.

SHSMO Collecting Materials Related to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The State Historical Society of Missouri (SHSMO) invites you to share your pandemic experience with us. As a community, we are all going through this pandemic together. Individually, however, the health crisis has affected each of us differently. We all have unique stories to share. Please consider telling us your story in an effort to document for future generations the impact a worldwide pandemic has had on both your community and on you as an individual. Your story and observations are important.

Our Work Continues

While our facilities are closed for the safety of our communities, we are working steadily behind the scenes at our own homes to assist patrons and to continue the mission of the State Historical Society of Missouri. We look forward to the day when we can reopen the Center for Missouri Studies and our six research centers and to welcome each of you back when we get to the other side of this pandemic.

Episode 30: "Gateway To Equality" – Keona Ervin (Meet Me in St. Louis, Part 6)

While this year's Missouri Conference on History may be over, the Our Missouri Podcast invites listeners to "meet us" in St. Louis for a multi-part series focusing on several projects and institutions that document the city's history and cultural identity. This episode features Keona Ervin discussing her award-winning book, "Gateway to Equality: Black Women and the Struggle for Economic Justice in St. Louis," which was published by the University Press of Kentucky in 2017.
