At the Fair St. Louis, 1904 A First Hand Account
Laura Merritt documented her month-long visit from Iowa to St. Louis and the World’s Fair as a 19-tear-old, in 100-page hand-written journal. Thanks to member Margie KIndt, Laura’s journal is now available in a new book form. “At the Fair: St. Louis 1904” resembles her original journal in size and style, with the text printed in a modern font. Laura’s remarkable story is related just as she had written – you’ll feel like you’re walking through the Fair with Laura! Margie Kindt produced this book for the Society, and describes the journal here.
