    The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Indian Raj, Varughese, Ashok, Babu, Eapen, Mathai, Saji, Aleykutty, Arul, Arun, Asha, Beena.English, Scottish, Welsh, German, Dutch, Spanish, French, Slovak, Czech, Jewish, and African (mainly Nigeria and Ethiopia); Hungarian (Sámuel): from the Biblical personal name Samuel (Hebrew Shemuel ‘Name of God’). In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed cognates from other languages such as Greek patronymic Samouelidis. The name Samuel is also found among Christians in southern India, but since South Indians traditionally do not have hereditary surnames, the southern Indian name was in most cases registered as such only after immigration of its bearers to the US.
