Years in print:
The Missouri Immigrant was established Jan. 1, 1880, under the auspices of the State Board of Immigration. In 1881, Samuel Archer became proprietor and editor. The paper, an eight-page monthly, is devoted to immigration, agriculture, stock-raising, wool-growing, and mining, and has done much to advertise Missouri abroad. It is judiciously edited, and its articles, both original and contributed, are of a high order of merit.
