MallofMemphis.org is a special kind of web site - called a wiki. All this means is than anyone, including you, can add, edit or update content on the site. We don't require you to register, give us your email or anything else. All we want is your opinions, your memories, your stories and your pictures about The Mall of Memphis and any other topic discussed here, especially items in or that you think should be in Lost Memphis.
What you see on this site today is the result of many different people, from all over the U.S. and the world, who shared information and started the process of building this site. Some we know well, some we have never met in person but know their name and some we don't any anything about - if they choose not to include their name. Many do, though and we suggest that you do tell us who you and a little about you. Then we can include you in the credits below. Or, if your prefer consider listing your name or nickname here as a contributor.
If you would like to help dig through old papers and microfilms, see Historical Research
