_ ANNUAL REPORT - 1941

I herewith present an annual report of the status, activities, and 1
accomplishments of the Missouri Historical Records Survey for the calendar 1

year January 1, 1941 to December 31, 1941.
The year (1941) was a very active one for the survey. Major empha- 1
sis was placed upon the completion of all phases of field work. 1
In order to expedite efficiency and increase production, a district 1
supervisor was assigned to the Historical Records Survey in each of the 1
~ five WPA districts in Missouri. Dr. Donald D. Parker, assistant state 1
supervisor, was assigned to District 1; Miss Frances Howard, District 2; 1
Mr. Ellis McClenning, District 5; Mr. Horace D. Pyle, District 4; and Mrs. 1
Ruth West, District 5. Thus, adequate field supervision was provided for 1
the Survey for the first time in its history. 1
A two-day conference of supervisors was held at the Project Office in H
V St. Louis, Missouri on January 15th and 14th. This conference gave the w
’ new supervisors an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the technical 1
details of the work, and to confer with the state supervisor on project 1
problems. A definite program was prepared and followed through, which in- 1
cluded special conferences with department heads, instructive talks, and 1
a field inspection of work. The meeting was attended by Mr. William 1
' Wagenbreth, Chief Research and Records Projects from the state WPA office 3
at Jefferson City, Missouri. On the last day of the conference Mr. :
Douglas McMurtrie, in charge of American Imprints Inventory, from the 1
Chicago office, visited the project. His instructions to the supervisors 1

 al
p “K
% were very timely. Q
I In February, a defense unit was opened at the weldon Spring Ordnance
' Works in St. Charles County. The territory embraced about 18,000 acres
. I and is rich in historical significance, including pioneer settlements, 1
j old buildings, churches, burying grounds, etc. Inhabitants were moved
2 from the region, homes demolished, churches closed, and a plant erected
; for the manufacture of the high explosive TNT. This plant is comprised U
j . of many units, employing thousands of workers. Realizing and appreciating ;
the wealth of historical materials that Would otherwise be lost, the army L
officials in charge requested the Historical Records Survey through the T
1 Work Projects Administration to record and preserve the valuable histori- i
‘ cal data of the region. Two certified workers, Mr. fiugust J. Peterson 9
' and Mr. Frank W. Daschel were assigned to compile the history of the 1
‘ territory. The work included: (1) a brief history of the towns and %
villages, (2) history of the churches, (3) sketches of early settlers, (4) I?
information concerning old buildings, and (5) transcriptions of all tomb— I
' stone inscriptions and records (with pencil sketches of the stones) were i
made. The field work was completed September 50th. I
i In June another defense unit was opened at Jefferson Barracks, St. A
y Louis, Missouri. There were thousands of military records to be arranged, E
: inventoried and filed. Some of these records dated from as early as 1812. E
f The army officipls were anxious to have this work done so they too con- m
? tacted the Woféggpggects Administration officials in District 3, St. Louis a
Missouri. The Historical Records Survey was once more called upon and the p
task was undertaken. The unit at the Barracks consists of a staff of six flé
‘ workers with Mr. Amos Braun as foreman. The latest report of the unit £
,
shows that the work is progressing rapidly and the following is a summary {h
I of the work accomplished. Eighty-two thousand (5x5") locator cards have ti
M?
i been arranged and alphabetized. These cards contain the names of enlisted I?
I I.

g men from 1900 to 1941 and are being arranged preliminary to the inventory A
i of records. They form an index to the military records of all men who )
i have been stationed at the post. Descriptive lists (records) of i
; enlisted men from 1876 to 1941 are being arranged alphabetically prior !
i to being inventoried. About 950,000 records of this nature have been }
§ arranged; 950 volumes of manuscripts have been inventoried, 1814-1932.
é Other old records have been arranged and assorted so they can be listed [
i and inventoried. Some of these old military records are of great histor— L
; ical value. 1
1 The work remaining to be done at Jefferson Barracks includes the H
J
arrangement of about 1,500,000 locator cards and descriptive lists, and V
i the inventorying of about 975 ledgers, including the unbound materials H
mentioned above. When the work was first started at the Barracks, all N
" of these old records were without arrangement and stored in boxes or H
? piled on the floor in the attic of the post headquarters. The records J
are now being arranged, new shelving has been added and an adequate .i
3 system of filing and arrangement installed. The army officials are very i
enthusiastic about the work that has been done and state that it has been i
of great value to them. Credit for the organization of this unit is due L
1 Mr. William H. Michell, office manager of the project in St. Louis. a
1 During the year, the Hon. Lloyd W. King, State Superintendent of F
‘ Public Schools of Missouri, was added as a member of the State Advisory t
Committee of the Historical hecords Survey. Superintendent King is very T
3 much interested in the work of the Survey and it is hoped that the public
3 schools in our State will become more interested in our publications for k
1 library and reference work. Some reprints of the historical sketches ‘@
V have already been made from our county inventory books for school use. it
V The Advisory Committee is composed of twelve outstanding and civic- ‘E
E minded Missourians: it

check list of Missouri Imprints from 1850 to 1876. This check list will i

i be completed within the next year. E

I There has been a marked increase in sponsor contributions for the y

, A

E year, which has made possible a full publication program. Promises for i

% additional contributions are quite encouraging. i

i At the present time, the county inventory book for McDonald County v

i is being published, and editorial work is being done in the project

E office on similar books for Stone, Dade, St. Louis, and Balls Counties,

E and a church directory is being prepared for St. Louis.

E From January, 1940 to October, 1941, the Historical Records Survey

% project office was located on the seventh floor of the Hamilton-Brown

i ‘ Shoe Company Building, 2031 Olive Street, St. Louis, Missouri. In

3 October, 1941, the office was moved to the sixth floor of the same build—

; ing. This location is more convenient, better lighted, has better

i storage facilities for the housing of supplies, etc. I

E Publications of the Missouri Historical Records Survey are sent to ;’

: many outstanding libraries, governmental agencies, and institutions in j

5 r

E the United States, such as: Library of Congress, Columbia University, §

§ Harvard University, State Historical Society of Missouri, St. Louis I

E Municipal Reference Library, and the State Social Security Commission g

E of Missouri. Also to distant depositories such as the University of

.

% Hawaii, Honolulu, T. H., University of Puerto Rico, Rio Pedras, Puerto '

E Rico, and the Deputy Minister of Public Archives of Canada, Ottowa,

E Canada, are sent publications of the survey.

E The Survey has rendered valuable services in the State. County L

E records have been inventoried. Workers on the Survey have arranged g

i , i

E records in offices and vaults in courthouses preliminary to the inventory, q

i and in a number of instances have been instrumental in having new H

E shelving and more adequate space provided for public records. W

I Important missing records have been found and valuable historical V j
I manuscripts have been discovered, transcribed, and published, such as: I
I (1) "Minutes of the Proceedings of the Bethel Church, 1806-1867" — (first I
i ' .
f Protestant Church west of the Mississippi), (2) "Minutes of the St. I
I Louis Board of Trustees, 1808-1809". (8) "Bates Land Minutes, 1812—1814".

I Early county court records have been copied and preserved, and information P
I has been secured on manuscript collections in the State which are of “
I intrinsic value as source materials for unpublished history. Old books, %
I pamphlets, broadsides, and newspapers published prior to 1877 have been fl
I listed. I-
I Much significant church history has been compiled and preserved, I
I representing all denominations. Federal, state, and town archives have I
I been inventoried. Valuable information has been compiled on vital I
I statistics in Connection with defense work, and the history of regions I
E demolished by the government, as a result of the defense program, has I
I been preserved. IL
I The activities of the Survey have stimulated interest in local I
I_ history, and our workers have written (on their own time) valuable I
, ! A
I articles on history for newspapers, magazines, and special publications. I
i The Survey has furnished to various historical organizations types of II
I information not available elsewhere. Reprints of the historical sketches I
s in several county inventory books have been made and are being used in I;

4 inventory books were published, 6 church records, 4 reprints, 4 manu- i
i script books, 10 miscellaneous publications, and a guide to vital ’
I v 1
statiStics records in Missouri. I
Outstanding publications of the year were: "Guide to Public Vital !
StatistiCS Records in Missouri," and "Early Missouri Archives," prepared ' 1
under the able direction of Edith S. Ballard, editor. i
_ i The Survey received some very fine publicity in the Missouri press f
' on the book on Vital Statistics. It received wide recognition. !
"Early Missouri Archives‘was a book listing manuscript source 5
V materials. The archives are deposited with the Missouri Historical ‘t
': Society, whose headquarters are located at the Jefferson Memorial, Forest 3
7‘ Park, St. Louis, Missouri. ‘
6 These archives, 1761—1821, constitute the earliest official records I
i of Missouri, dating back to colonial times. Most of the documents are I
written in the'Frenoh language, with a few in Spanish. Only a small [
I percentage of the papers have been translated into English. The archives [
I are frequently consulted by scholars, historians, and research workers;
2 but a complete list of these valuable manuscripts had not heretofore 1
’ been published or made available to anyone outside of the library of the £1
‘ Missouri Historical Society. They deal with practically every phase of iv
, official history, including: churches and religion, marriages, slaves, r
3 Indians, concessions, deeds and land transactions, surveys, public sales, 7%
: mines and mining, town ordinances, agreements, bonds and notes, accounts *3
in
l and receipts,litigations, letters, inquests, boats, roads, estates and 5;
, wills, tax lists, etc. i;
1 These documents were arranged according to subjects end listed by: i?
(1) names of principal parties, (2) dates, and (5) manuscript file numbers. if:
The publication of this historical manuscript list was undertaken at i:
L the suggestion of Miss Stella M. Drumm, librarian, Missouri Historical .W

; Society, who pointed out the importance of the collection and its great 1
I value to Colonial, early Missouri, and Tbstern history. It was through i
: her courtesy and cooperation that the compilation and publication of the I
l
1 list was made possible. 1
' It is hoped that this inventory of early Missouri archives will call i
the attention of scholars and historians to a more comprehensive study, I
l
knowledge, and appreciation of them. 1
The publication was supervised by A. Loyd Collins, state supervisor, 1
‘ assisted by Edith S. Ballard, editor. Miss Marie Jensen typed and
V prepared the manuscript for mimeographing. Grateful acknowledgment is J
i
also due Colonel werner John Genet, translator of foreign languages on g
' 1
V the staff of the Historical Records Survey, who gave valuable assistance 1
