2009-2010 Official Manual

For more than 100 years, Missouri has published the Official Manual of the State of Missouri, commonly known as the “Blue Book.” The “Blue Book” provides detailed information on local, state and federal governments, as well as stories, essays and pictures that help preserve our state’s heritage.

This year’s edition of the “Blue Book” honors the members of the Missouri National Guard and their long history of service to our state and our nation.
