Woman stirring kettle. From collection C0868 f. 98.

This guide to resources on women should not be considered exhaustive. Rather, the collections selected for inclusion are ones in which women played a major or significant part in creating. They reflect the varied roles women have undertaken and the causes they have supported. They chronicle women's lives from childhood to old age. Researchers may also want to refer to the National Women and Media Collection.

State Historical Society of Missouri Research Centers are housed on the four campuses of the University of Missouri System. Collections held by one research center can be borrowed for use by patrons at any of the other centers through an intercampus loan system, and collections that have been microfilmed can be borrowed through interlibrary loan.


*Collections marked with DIGITIZED MATERIALS have additional digitized items available.

All of this information is informative and entertaining, but unfortunately most of the publications are sporadic.
