Eminent and prolific historian Father William Barnaby Faherty, SJ, offers a unique take on the history of the Mound City with Centuries of St. Louis. This new history is told through profiles of important citizens, some prominent, all respected. From Marguerite Blondeau Guion LeCompte, the first woman to give birth in St. Louis, to the venerable sportswriters Bob Burnes and Bob Broeg, Faherty offers insight into the events and people that define St. Louis by documenting their lives and historical contexts. Many facets of society are covered in this book, including education, politics, religion, sports, activism, philanthropy, and business. Faherty chose to write about achievers rather than celebrities. These achievers made notable accomplishments in their respective fields and the events that surrounded them. Softcover, 5x8, 128 pages
