Summary "The central location of St. Louis; its railroad and river facilities of transportation; its business enterprise; its commercial importance; its industries; its wealth, all combine to insure its future growth and prosperity as one of the most important inland cities of America. But of still greater importance is its leadership in the trend of modern philosophic thought and the intellectual and spiritual progress of its people. Emerson tells of the shot for freedom and independence that was heard around the world. So in the following pages is reported that wonderful liberation of spirit and the progress and advancement of the "St. Louis Early Movement"--in philosophy, art, literature, psychology, and education, which was developed here about forty years ago, and which has had such a profound influence in St. Louis and throughout the west, and has spread to the eastern seaboard and become international in its scope. Briefly sketched here are the lives and works of the great men who originated and contributed to what is known as the "Early St. Louis Movement," notably, William Torrey Harris, Henry C. Brockmeyer, Denton J. Snider, Thomas Davidson, Adolph Kroeger, J. Gabriel Woerner and others. It is regretted that the interest and spirit of the occasion cannot be adequately reported. It will be interesting to study these men in their various tendencies, as the speakers have viewed them from different standpoints, thus affording us an unique and more general consideration of their work and influence"--Introduction.
