Further Reading

The following is a list of items taken from Merlin from the various libraries on campus that you may wish to access for further information and background on the amazing people we high-lighted in our Leaders and Heroes exhibit. Some of the resources may be available online or for physical check out.  

Each of these individuals may have been overlooked, but they are all precious to our continued understanding of the past, and history as we’ve been taught it. Mizzou Special Collections fully believes that our diverse resources are worth collecting and protecting to the best of our abilities as a major university system.
