Counties: Dallas, Dent, Laclede, Shannon, Texas."Research was started at the University of Missouri in 1928 under the inspiration of Mr. Allen Walker Read, then of the department of English. It has been continued under the supervision of Dr. Robert L. Ramsay of the English Department; and in the eleven years since the inception of the project, eleven theses have been completed, treating 17,750 place names f'rom 82 counties. This twelfth study is a continuation of the project. In it are included the names of five counties, Dallas, Dent, Laclede, Shannon, and Texas. My district is ranged in a sort of stair-stepped fashion across the central southern portion of the state. All of my counties are included in the region known as the Ozarks, yet each county is distinctive and dissimilar from the others in topography, industries, and in that vague element which strangers refer to as atmosphere."--Page iii.
