Articles examining the historical and political roles of women who helped shape
an American state. All material has been taken from several editions of
the Official Manual of the State of Missouri; some from a section within the
Manual titled: "Missouri Almanac".
MISSOURI ALMANAC, 1999-2000
excerpt from: It All Adds Up: Reform and the Erosion of Representative
Government in Missouri, 1900-2000
by Kenneth H. Winn
*Electronic Editor's Note: This article runs 33 pages in the Manual.
I've attempted to break it into manageable sections for web publication.
The 1993-94 Manual misstates the dating of this article as being in the 1972-73
"Missouri Almanac"; a subsection of the larger Manual. I copied the
introduction verbatim--it's not my place to change the material, but be aware
that there is no 1972-73 Official Manual of the State of Missouri.
