Introduction

Acquired by the Mercantile Library in 1986, when the Globe-Democrat ceased publication, the photo archives form an historical library of record for the city of St. Louis and the state of Missouri. Currently only a small fraction of the photographs housed in the collection available electronically.

The Collection

The newspapers which eventually merged to form the St. Louis Globe-Democrat were staunch advocates of freedom and anti-slavery in Missouri.
