It is with pleasure that the secretary of the State Historical Society reports the progress that has been made during the past year. Since the annual state appropriation of became available, July 1, 1905, the general outline of work has been ar ranged and some small part of the task has been accomplished. When the Society was reorganized in 1908, very little was at tempted during the next two years except some archaeological work in the Missouri valley, an exhibit at the St. Louis world’s fair and the beginning of a collection of the newspapers of the state. The proposed reconstruction of the capitol building has delayed our occupation of the rooms set apart for us, but in June we were notified that we could take possession of the museum room, office and vault in the basement of the new wing at the capitol. This was Welcome news to all friends of the Society. During the inter’regnum the collection of newspapers, books, Indian relics and other miscellaneous material was stored in various places, in danger of loss by fire and subject to all the wear and tear incident to such storage; The furnishing of the museum room with suitable display cases, and the vault with file cases for papers and documents, has yet to be done, no funds are available just now for any of these purposes. In spite of this, however, the Society has taken possession of the rooms and is having temporary cases made till permanent furniture can be supplied, so that the public may see what we have done to justify state aid in the past and why we ask for a larger appro priation for the future.
