Lookup Request - St Louis Newspaper Article (1906)

Surnames: Edler
I am based in the UK and am carrying out research for an academic thesis. I have a transcription of a report of the death of a young child named Kenneth W. Edler, who died in St Louis on 25 July 1906, having fallen from a window. His parents were Sheldon and Jennie Edler. The transcript does not have any source details, and I am very keen to get a copy of the actual article. It must be from a St Louis publication, but I do not know which. I wondered if anybody might be prepared to carry out a search for this article on my behalf. I would also be interested in any other articles relating to this incident.

Any assistance would be very gratefully received.

Try the St. Louis Public Library. Go to item #13 and click on ReferenceDesk. I think they might be able to send you a jpg if they find the article.
