The University of Missouri at Saint Louis
First a Dream:
a Golden Jubilee
St. Louis, Missouri
This 50-year-old arm of the University of Missouri had quickly made a name for itself and wanted a book to showcase its growth and accomplishments. But instead of a topical or chronological history, the university developed thematic chapters that told a broader story. For instance, the chapter entitled “Synergy,” told about the school’s relationship with the business community, while “Engagement” discussed the close ties with the city.
Going with Bookhouse Publishing over local and in-state publishers was taking a big chance. Now that the books have arrived, I can say it paid off. First, A Dream is everything we were looking for in a publication to highlight UMSL’s first fifty years. You did a superb job. Just as importantly, you did a finely professional job of guiding us through the process from start to finish. There were no missteps, no confusion and a clear pathway to completing the job on-time and on-budget.
