The material you are interested in is held by the University Archives, University of Missouri at Columbia.

None of the materials found in the University Archives can be checked out.

Materials from the holdings of the University Archives can, under normal circumstances, be made available by Archives' staff for patrons to examine and study in the Archives' Reading Room (Room 703, Lewis Hall) during regular business hours.

University Archives is open 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday, except holidays.

In order to view materials in the Reading Room, they must first be requested from Archives staff.
