Compiled by Arthur Paul Moser
In compiling this Directory of Towns, Villages, and Hamlets, Past and Present of Oregon County, Mo., every effort has been made to include every community in the county.
I am indebted to Mrs. Eunice Pennington, Librarian of the Current River Regional Library for taking the time to review this work. She has read it and she could find no exceptions to it.
Also, the staff in the research department of the Springfield Public Library has very graciously made rare books available for examination.
Material examined for this directory includes the following.
Gazetteer of Missouri, 1874, Campbell.
New Atlas of Missouri, 1874, Campbell.
The State of Missouri, in 1904, Walter Williams.
Encyclopedia of the History of Missouri, 1901, Conrad.
Several maps as indicated.

S. in Ed., Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Degree of Master of Arts in the Graduate School in the University of Mo., 1946. Referred to as "Place Names".
