Newspaper Collection

Missouri Intelligencer Newspaper

Beginning with the July 26, 1808, issue of the St. Louis Missouri Gazette, the Society’s Newspaper Collection offers researchers a wealth of information about the day-to-day lives of Missourians and the political, cultural, economic, and religious events that have influenced them. Available in 1,270 bound volumes and on over forty-one million pages of microfilm, these Missouri newspapers document events and public opinion from the state’s rural environs to its largest metropolitan areas. A dynamic collection, some three hundred current newspapers, from every Missouri county, are added to the collection each week.
