    Notes 
    • From the The State Historical Society of Missouri:
      "Russell A. How was born on 27 November 1906. He worked for the Laclede Gas Company in St. Louis, Missouri.
      Bernadine M. How was born on 20 November 1910. She and Russell married on 5 August 1933 and they had three daughters, Harriet, Rita, and Louise. The family resided in Webster Groves, Missouri.
      The Hows spent their free time camping and documenting grist mills throughout the Ozarks region of the state. They compiled descriptions and photographs of approximately 200 mills and visited at least fifty in their over forty years of travels. They also documented other buildings and sites they encountered including general stores and school houses, and interviewed long-time residents in the communities they visited.
      Russell How contributed several articles based on his research trips to Ozarks Mountaineer from 1969 to 1973. He died on 14 July 1996 and Bernadine How died on 3 November 2001.
