This is one of ten volumes of a series reporting the results of the Cultural Resources Survey of the Harry S. Truman Dam and Reservoir Project, on the Osage River in southwestern Missouri. The combined volumes report the findings of the historical, architectural, and archeological surveys of the reservoir area. These surveys, conducted between 1975 and 1977, were carried out by the American Archaeology Division, Department of Anthropology, University of Missouri-Columbia, under contract with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District. These volumes provide documentation evidencing compliance with Executive Order 11593 “Protection and Enhancement of the Cultural Environment” dated 13 May 1971, Section 2(a), and was authorized for funding under P.L. 86-253 as amended by P.L. 93-291.
Volume I contains an outline of Osage River history to serve as a background for historical studies; Volume II is a historical gazetteer, and concludes with recommendations for mitigating the effect of the reservoir on historical resources. Both volumes were prepared by historian Curtis H. Synhorst.
