The Home Defender was a civic organization newspaper published in St. Louis. On 11 December 1915, they published a list of injuries and deaths that pertained to tetanus during that year. Some people recovered from their illness; others did not.

The original articles are available at Missouri Historical Society.

With a suggestion from Dennis Northcott, Audrey Flavin transcribed and contributed this information for publication in the 2000 St. Louis Genealogical Society Quarterly, volume 33, number 4, page 163.
