St. Louis Walk of Fame nonprofit founder Joe Edwards says, “We donate a copy of our book to every middle and high school library in the region as part of our mission to cultivate children’s pride in the St. Louis community and showcase role models that inspire career paths.”

St. Louis enthusiast and business owner Joe Edwards founded the non-profit St. Louis Walk of Fame in 1988 with the goal of drawing attention to great St. Louisans who have had a major influence on our culture on a national or international level. The Walk of Fame consists of brass stars and bronze plaques embedded in the sidewalks of the vibrant Delmar Loop neighborhood. Each star features the name of an honoree and the accompanying plaque contains a biography putting their achievements and connection to the city into perspective making this Walk enjoyable and educational.

Since 1972, when Joe opened Blueberry Hill Restaurant & Music Club in the Delmar Loop, his creative vision and cooperative leadership have helped guide the area to become one of the most vibrant restaurant, shopping and arts and entertainment districts in the United States. It was designated “One of the 10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association.
