dc.description.abstract"This study is in many ways unique. It is the lat of the series. In 1928 a survey of Missouri place names was suggested by Dr. Allen Walker Read, then of the University of Missouri. The work has been supervised by Dr. Robert L. Ramsay of the English Department. Now after seventeen years the studies are being completed. After the information was collected as described, checked, and written in final form as found in the Dictionary (Chapter One), the names were separated into five classes: Borrowed Names, Historical Names, Personal Names, Environmental Names, and Cultural Names (called Subjective Names in the earlier theses). Unsolved Names were grouped in a sixth division."--Introduction.eng
