"Table of Contents''

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.
