Title: St. Louis Post-Dispatch Collection

Description: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Collection contains newspaper photographs donated to the Missouri Historical Society between the years 1959 and 1971. In general, the chief of the Post-Dispatch’s reference department selected the photographs donated. In some cases the photographs were culled from the newspaper morgue as not being of immediate use to the newspaper, but deemed to be of possibly historic interest to the Society. The period of coverage generally spans 1950 to 1971, with only a few photographs predating the 1950 beginning date. The photographs are arranged by year and subject within the year. Due to high demand photos covering the Civil Rights movement have been separated into a single box spanning 1959 to 1971. No reproduction rights were explicitly granted at the time of gift. In 1999 the Post-Dispatch granted the Society a license to release these photographs under sublicense agreements for editorial use. A full explanation of the conditions of this agreement appear under the restrictions section.
