    Missouri State Penitentiary: 1836 – 1931

    Missouri Digital Heritage has launched the Missouri State Penitentiary database! This database is an index of the penitentiary records, and includes mug shots when available, but they weren’t taken as a matter of course until 1928. Unlike the death certificates project, PDFs of the records aren’t available online, but obtaining the records is easy and cheap: a buck and an envelope.

    I love the Missouri State Archives!
