This document contains the constitution, by-laws, and a list of early members of the Mechanics' Institute of St. Louis. It was a short-lived organization that for a time shared resources with the Saint Louis Lyceum. Both organizations fit into the typical format of self-improvement organizations associated with the Lyceum Movement, and both eventually folded to be replaced by the later St. Louis Mercantile Library Association.
