The List Revealed

From 2004 through 2014, “The List” appeared in each issue dsm. Compiled by company founder Connie Wimer and publisher Janette Larkin, it consisted of the names of metro residents who share something in common, such as a physical characteristic, possession, passion, talent or personality trait. The primary purpose of this feature was to have fun but also to add a little intrigue and mystery to the content mix. Here are the connections among people who’ve been on The List over the years:
