Deeply diverse in culture, even harkening back to the Old South in some parts, they comprise a fascinating study in what makes a state tick. Bankers, educators, lawyers, farmers, elected officials, artists, athletes, humanitarians and more, they are all part of the rich fabric of life in the Show-Me State.” Ross was heralded for his depth of knowledge for Missouri’s history and his story-telling approach.
