This chapter focuses on the leadership and annual meetings of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association (MVHA) from 1907–1952. Many of the most prominent early leaders of the MVHA devoted significant effort to building major collections of primary sources for their states and regions. Edward E. Dale, for instance, established the Western historical research collections at the University of Oklahoma. Theodore Blegen did much on behalf of collection development at the James Ford Bell Library of the University of Minnesota. Tom Clark earned recognition as the “father” of Special Collections and Archives at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. A top priority for the MVHA was improved connections among state historical agencies and institutions.
