Walter B. Stevens was a Missouri historian and newspaperman who served as city editor and then Washington correspondent for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. In this 1916 volume, originally published by The Franklin Club of Saint Louis and limited to one hundred copies, Stevens provides an anecdotal history of Grant in St. Louis based upon letters from the manuscript collection of William K. Bixby, a noted industrialist and collector with strong links to the St. Louis area. Of particular interest is information on Grant's interest in the Gravois Road property he had acquired and how his St. Louis connections embroiled him in the Whisky Ring scandal.
