The Dorothy Brockhoff Papers consist of correspondence, speeches, magazine and newspaper articles, and photographs, pertaining to Brockhoff’s career in journalism and public relations in the St. Louis area from 1948 to the 1990s. Known affectionately among her colleagues as “Scoop” for her enterprising reporting, Brockhoff wrote for a variety of publications, including the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, the Washington University Magazine, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Brockhoff’s articles for the Washington University Magazine garnered national attention, resulting in the National Women’s Press Association awarding her first prize for best interview story in 1974. Other materials of interest include speeches Brockhoff ghostwrote for Monsanto Chemical Company executives, as well as photographs of Brockhoff and her relatives. The papers date from 1901 to 1996.
