Missouri State Penitentiary
I don't usually RE-post here, but I was reading this blog about penitentiary records this morning and I thought others may be interested in it.

"After discovering Ephraim P Bennett in the Missouri State Prison on the 1900 census, I emailed the Missouri State Archives about his penitentiary records. First of all, they were incredibly helpful and emailed back within hours. And, they explained how to order his two-page record. The cost: only $1!Dana goes on to explain the contents of the records, and asks if anyone out there knows how to cite this source.
I had never seen a penitentiary record before and wasn't sure what it would contain."
