Coverage Dates: 1920s - 1980s
Acquired by the St. Louis Mercantile Library in 1986, when the 137 years old newspaper ceased publication, this vast collection covers the history, culture and life of the St. Louis region and the state of Missouri. The clips and photos cover a wide array of topics, from individuals, to events, to a multitude of other subjects.
NOTE: This is a work in progress (Complete: St. Louis subject index, Names Index A-T) The material in the collection is in several different formats (indexes, clippings files, photos, microform, etc.), and most of the material is NOT online. The Thomas Jefferson Library, located in the same building as the Mercantile, has the microform version of the St. Louis Globe Democrat available.
A few years of the Globe-Democrat (1975 (Nov.) - 1979) are also indexed in the Index to St. Louis newspapers.
