Counties: Butler, Carter, Howell, Oregon, and Ripley."This present study is the the seventeenth in continuation of a project begun by the English Department of the University of Missouri in 1928, that of finding and recording the origin of the names of places in Missouri. I count it a rare privilege to have a small share in this worthy work. I have chosen tor my portion a group of the southern border counties consisting or Carter, Howell, Oregon, Hipley, and Butler. The last four are a part of the first tier or counties next to the Missouri-Arkansas boundary; Carter lies just north of Oregon, and because of its position, might be considered in either the first or second row from the state line. I prefer to name this study Place Names in Five Southern Border Counties of Missouri."--Introduction.
