The Missourian Newspaper Library moved to Lee Hills Hall in 1995 with the Columbia Missourian and has served the faculty and students at the University of Missouri and the community in some capacity since 1908. The School of Journalism is reconstructing the current newsrooms and offices in Lee Hills Hall to accommodate a new converged newsroom, which will include all j-school media outlets. In May of 2021, the physical Missourian Newspaper library space was closed due to space constraints, but the Journalism and Digital Access Librarian and staff are now in the journalism library.
The Missourian Library contained thousands of clip files (articles from the newspaper that were cut out and filed) arranged by subject, business, organization, events and location. They were mainly collected in the 1980s and 1990s from the Columbia Missourian and the Columbia Tribune. There are separate file cabinets which hold biographical files of people in and around Columbia and were collected as far back as the 1920s. These files were integral to the mission of the library in providing historical information about Columbia and Boone County to the university and the community. These clip archives have been donated to the Boone County Historical Society. After learning about the files, they were enthusiastic about saving this portion of history.
The Journalism Library will continue to support researchers with access to the Missourian through microfilm (from 1908 to present) and online archives. Please contact the Journalism Library for assistance.

In May, they dedicated a new Pauline Pfeiffer traveling exhibit that is housed in the upstairs of our museum. As curator of the endeavor, Anthony’s focus zeroed in on Pfeiffer’s distinguished career as a reporter and editor before her marriage to Ernest Hemingway. Pfeiffer graduated from the University of Missouri
with a journalism degree and moved on to claim bylines in newspapers across the United States and eventually landed in Paris, working for Vogue magazine after a stint with Vanity Fair.
Childress, a former journalist, says Pfeiffer’s story is one of great interest and felt, given her ties to Mizzou, that it would seem the ideal place to host the exhibit. It consists of three panels. The first panel is about her high school and collegiate days and a poem she published, the second panel features examples of her reporting news and features for daily papers and Vogue, and the third panel transitions into her role as Hemingway’s editor during their 13-year marriage.
