The Bench and Bar of Missouri scrapbooks (two volumes) comprise photocopies of newspaper clippings relating to Missouri lawyers and judges clipped primarily from St. Louis newspapers and compiled into scrapbooks by the staff of the Missouri Historical Society library. These clippings include obituaries, articles regarding appointments and retirements, and biographical sketches. Many of the entries in this index refer to lawyers mentioned in a series of articles on early lawyers of St. Louis. Some of the articles are accompanied by a portrait. The clippings in these scrapbooks are dated circa 1880s-1960s. In most cases, the name and date of the newspaper from which the clipping was clipped is written on the article ("P-D" for St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "G-D" for St. Louis Globe-Democrat, "Rep" for Missouri Republican/St. Louis Republic).
