The Greene County Historical Society will hold their Fall 2017 program on Sunday, October 29, 2017, beginning at 2:00 p.m. in Missouri State University’s Meyer Library. State Historical Society of Missouri President Bob Priddy will provide a sneak preview of the Society’s $40 million headquarters (scheduled to open in 2019). Located in Columbia, this new facility will be a gathering place for researchers, allow for increased gallery space to showcase Missouri art and artists, and have room for public programming. For forty years, Priddy served as news director of The Missourinet, a statewide radio network. In October 2016, he became President of the State Historical Society of Missouri. He is the author of five books including his latest one about the art of the Missouri Capitol. The State Historical Society of Missouri – Springfield Research Center (based in Meyer Library) will have a display of some interesting archival items from the SHSMO collections. These materials focus on the Ozarks, and visitors will learn more about how to get access locally to much of the Society’s archives. This event is free and open to the public. Visitor parking on weekends is available in Parking Lot 19 or Bear Park South. Visitors must use regular parking spots. Meters are enforced 24/7. http://map.missouristate.edu/printable/ShuttleMap.pdf This program is supported by MSU’s Special Collections and Archives and the State Historical Society of Missouri – Springfield Research Center.
