Fair President Rowland R. Francis produced a book that was published in 1913 by the Louisiana Exposition Company. Sadly, it lacks much Fair information or his personal insight and mainly contains massive lists of sponsors, figures and names. On the positive side, it contains many nice photos on the Fair.
Because of online space and scanning limitations, the information on this book is not 100 percent correct and it is condensed. Scanning books and transferring causes errors. All the higher-quality pictures are not on this site, they are linked to the Missouri Historical Society.
The below book pages (one through fifteen) are on this site; the image titles are links. Please click on whatever part of the book you require to view. A downloadable link with poorer quality images can be reached at the bottom of this page.
On a silly note, I kept the $ symbols in the book that I have taken out on this site to keep the integrity of the book.
