John Hoover, St. Louis Mercantile Library

June 16, 2014 by Nancy Kranzberg

John Hoover, Director of the St. Louis Mercantile Library, talks with Nancy about the history of mercantile libraries, and the SLML's diverse array of collections and events. On June 26, the Mercantile Library will be hosting "The Chouteau Narrative: A symposium in Honor of the 250th Anniversary of the Founding of St. Louis". The symposium will be exploring August Chouteau's handwritten account of St. Louis' origins, a manuscript that is one of the many rare historical documents that live at the Mercantile Library.
