Help the Missouri State Archives preserve the Show-Me State’s 200+ year history by submitting images to the Missouri Bicentennial Photograph Drive. This effort, started back in 2021, is now concluding with four public imaging events, the fourth of which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024, at The Library Center, 4653 S. Campbell Ave., Springfield, MO 65810.
Drop by anytime between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Missouri State Archives staff will assist with identifying and scanning your photographs, slides and/or negatives that fit into one (or more) of the four Missouri Bicentennial Photograph Drive focus areas:
- Cultural activities occurring in Missouri
- Events of note in Missouri history
- Famous and (not so) famous Missourians
- Important natural or manmade Missouri sites
Event attendees submitting photographs will receive high resolution scans and maintain ownership of their physical prints, slides and/or negatives.
