Over There: Missouri & the Great War, a traveling exhibition highlighting a statewide collaborative digitization project to document Missouri's role in World War I, will be on display at Duane G. Meyer Library Dec. 4, 2019-Feb. 27, 2020.

Learn about the contributions of Missouri women and African Americans to the war effort. Discover the vital role Missouri horses and mules played in the war despite the military adopting new technologies such as motorized vehicles.
