About this collection

 

The Miller Reserve Collection documents the donation and development of the Miller Reserve, a 27 acre plot of land donated to Southeast Missouri State University by alumni Dr. John Lawrence, his brother Dr. Addison Lawrence, and their family in 2008. The Lawrence family, who had farmed this land for generations, donated the Reserve to the University to be reclaimed back to wetlands. This project is a joint effort between the University, the Federal Wetland Reserve and the Missouri Department of Conservation. This collection contains land deed records, maps, photographs, correspondence and scientific reports by students and researchers.
