Message from the President of the 2020 Missouri Conference on History

With the Missouri Conference on History scheduled to start Wednesday evening and Thursday morning, we wanted to write to you about the conference and concerns about the Coronavirus. Fortunately, the St. Louis region has been mostly spared, with just a couple of confirmed cases starting this week. We have, therefore, decided to proceed with the conference.

People should avoid travel from higher risk places and take any travel precautions they think are necessary. We want you to be safe and feel safe. Should you decide to stay home, we hope you’ll consider submitting your paper next year for the conference in Columbia, Missouri.

Jeffrey E. Smith, Ph.D.
President, 2020 Missouri Conference on History

Join Us in St. Louis

Join us March 11-13, 2020, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Louis-Chesterfield. The 2020 conference is hosted by Lindenwood University and sponsored by the State Historical Society of Missouri.
