Behind the Scenes: William K. Bixby

16, August 2012

Ever wonder how libraries and museums acquire their collections? In some cases, they connect with individual collectors. In this video, librarian Emily Jaycox shares how one prominent St. Louisan—William K. Bixby—contributed to the Missouri History Museum Library and Archives. In addition to contributing to Museum collections, Bixby served as Missouri Historical Society president from 1907 to 1913 and again from 1925 to 1930. Next time you visit the Museum, stop by his namesake, Bixby’s restaurant.
