Digitizing St. Louis: History & Public Policy

This project is aimed at bringing to life the history of St. Louis and the region through the unique lens of public policy. The purpose of this project is to provide researchers, students, and the general public with a greater understanding of our region’s history, development and missed opportunities. I cannot be held responsible if this project depresses you–my hope would be that it instead inspires you to create/shape better, more inclusive and empathetic public policy.

These documents are from the State Historical Society of Missouri, St. Louis Research Center.

The following is an illustrated excerpt from the 1968 proposed plan for the creation of a St Louis Convention theater, and theme park near Union Station and Mill Creek Valley. It never happened, but it's fun to look at what would have inevitably failed.

Before I donated my postcards depicting sites in Cleveland Ohio to the Public Library in Cleveland I took a few minutes to quickly scan as many as I could grab--most depicted in this file are from my downtown/park folder. A few are cut off due to a hasty scan job.
