Electronic Editor's Note:

I have entered these articles onto the University of Missouri-St. Louis Libraries Web structure and, lately, onto my Washington University webspace as an experiment. To my knowledge, the articles and photographs are not copyrighted. I am, of course, attributing the articles and photos to their creators. The design of the printed issues could be under copyright protection, but that is not being duplicated in this electronic "edition". (The printed issue is quite nice, by the way--Good job, Musick & Co.) If you have any constructive comments, drop me e-mail at: and we'll discuss it. 

Snailmail is good, too:

The original version of this site is still available from UM-St. Louis: [Let's see if Raleigh's paying attention:]

I'm not duplicating entire issues--only those portions that deal with the lives of Missourians of African descent.

Print Editor's Note...from the September/October 1997 issue:
The Historic Preservation Program regrets that, due to publishing constraints, the May/June and July/August 1997 Preservation Issues will not be published this year: Also, beginning in January 1998,Preservation Issues will change from a bimonthly to a quarterly publication. We will strive to enhance the publication in the quarterly format.
