Photographs from the early 1900s

Part of the vast Boone County Historical Society photo collection has been placed with the University of Missouri Digital Library. This part contains over 700 high-quality photographs from glass plate negatives taken from before 1910 to 1936. The negatives were selected from the Westhoff Archive at the Boone County Historical Society and were taken by Joe Douglass, Henry Holborn, and Wesley Blackmore. These photographs provide a unique glimpse into the people and culture of Columbia, Boone County and Missouri in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. They are an irreplaceable record that we hope will prove valuable to a large variety of audiences: historians, sociologists, and the general public looking for information from the past.
