Return to St. Louis
Behind the scene experiences with Lewis and Clark artifacts at the Missouri Historical Society Library and Research Center highlighted the 51st Annual Meeting in St. Louis.
More than two hundred attendees viewed historic maps and documents including Thomas Jefferson’s original Letter of Credit written to Meriwether Lewis, July 4, 1803.
Other highlights included the 2nd Annual Moulton Lecture with Dr. Peter Kastor, a field trip to the new museum at the Gateway Arch, a riverboat cruise and opportunities to enjoy the Discovery Expedition of St. Charles encampment. There were numerous accomplished presenters, a program about recent discoveries at Ft. Kaskaskia; and a panel of speakers reviewed several of the Foundation’s significant accomplishments over the past fifty years.
One evening, there was applause and huzzahs when several Members indicated they had attended more than twenty-five Annual Meetings.
