Show Me Missouri

Show Me Missouri tells the story of Missouri and Missourians through the lens of historically and culturally significant objects. This digital exhibit examines these stories through a more complex, inclusive, and critical interpretation. To learn more about the project’s objectives, click here.

The project is a collaboration of historians, public historians, archivists, librarians, and students across the state. This project is an effort led by the Department of History and the Center for Midwestern Studies at the University of Missouri—Kansas City, the Springfield-Greene County Library District, and the Kansas City Public Library.

Content for the website was created by a team of graduate, undergraduate and high school students led by Keona Ervin at the University of Missouri—Columbia, Petra DeWitt and Patrick Huber at Missouri University Science & Technology, Nick Dorn at Pembroke Hill School, Jeremy Neely at Missouri State University, Silvana Siddali at St. Louis University, Jeffrey Smith at Lindenwood University, and Sandra Enríquez and Diane Mutti Burke at the University of Missouri—Kansas City.
