BULLET St. Louis Argus Obituary Index 1927 A - I

This index of names was obtained from the BURIAL PERMITS column and individual obituaries found in the St. Louis Argus.

Very much like the Burial Permits (*) found in the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, they include name, address and age, but not cause of death or the exact date of death. They are the most common source of entry for this index. Individual obituaries are indicated by "#"

The index begins with Vol. 3 #39, January 1, 1915 as this is the earliest surviving copy on microfilm.

All dates listed are for the first date that the notice appeared in the St. Louis Argus, not the date of death. Subsequent entries from the same individual are not listed unless they appear to provide additional
information.

Every effort has been made to be as complete as possible. However, due to poor quality in the microfilm and missing pages, a small percent of the names listed in the newspaper are not available.

This index has been provided as a companion index to the OBITUARY INDEX of the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH when it became evident that the Post-Dispatch was not providing a resource for deaths in the local African-American community. A survey of the 1915 indexes of both papers indicates that the Post-Dispatch only listed 23% of the names found in the St. Louis Argus and those where only listed among the Burial Permits. Not a single name was found as a Death Notice or Obituary article in the Post-Dispatch.
