A World on Display: The St. Louis World's Fair of 1904

Uses first-person accounts from Missourians who went to the Fair in 1904, interviews with historians, archival motion pictures, and photographs to situate the St. Louis Fair in the social, political, and cultural context of American society in 1904. Covers American civilization at the turn of the century; the representation of history; authenticity; modernity; dress and body language; oral history and childhood memories; world fairs as experiences; and receiving information through visual symbols, words, and exhibits.
