Scope and Content Note
This Sub-Group contains printed and duplicated materials of the University of Missouri-Columbia. Included in this Sub-Group are printed research papers published by University faculty, public lectures delivered by members of the faculty, and a certificate of registration denoting the University as an official "Patron of the Smithsonian Institution."
Series 1. - C:0/49/4 (A86-54; A21-51)
This Series contains copies of the University of Missouri Studies: A Quarterly of Research, (1926-1980). The chief function of the publication was to publish the results of original research by faculty members and graduate students that were not included in the general bulletin series. A Board of Editors, with the aid of the Dean of the Graduate Faculty, selected the material to be published. The Director of University Publications was in charge of printing, which in the early years, was usually done at Stephens Publishing Company. Until Volume XXVI, No. 4 in 1954, there were four issues intended to be produced per year, each usually dealing with a different topic - however, based on circumstantial evidence of collected volumes, Volume XXIII seems to consist of only No. 1 and Volume XXIV of only Nos. 1-3. Beginning with Volume XXVII in 1955, each volume of the Studies consisted of a single issue. There were no publications in 1958. The last volume in the series was LXIX in 1980.
