Who Were the Settlers of the Old Ozarks? Come hear about your Ozark relatives at the MoSGA conference on August 2-3, 2019.
Using his new book, A History of the Ozarks, Volume 1: The Old Ozarks, as the launching point, Blevins will discuss settlement patterns in different parts of the Ozark region. Among the topics covered will be the ethnic and national origins of those who immigrated to the area between the 1790s and the beginning of the Civil War and the social institutions and lifeways they brought with them.
Brooks Blevins is the Noel Boyd Professor of Ozarks Studies at Missouri State University in Springfield. He is the author or editor of nine books, including the first two volumes in the trilogy, A History of the Ozarks, covering the period up through the Civil War and Reconstruction.
