St. Louis Bosnians

About Us – St. Louis Bosnians

The St. Louis Bosnian is a history/archive project of the Bosnian community in St. Louis, first developed by Patrick McCarthy of SLU, and later on re-branded from a simple history class thesis by Akif Cogo into a complete historical database of the Bosnian community. Information, gathered mainly in electronic form, includes newspapers articles, books, research completed at other institutions, private research, testimonies, photographs, videos and other resources significant to local Bosnians.

The main goal of the St. Louis Bosnian project is to gather information about the Bosnian people in St. Louis for the purpose of acquiring insight into the ideas and realities that shaped the lives of men and women of Bosnian descent who lived in Saint Louis–past, present and future.
