Call number: Archives_GEA
Goldwin E. Anderson was a longtime resident of the Austin community.
Goldwin E. Anderson collected newsclippings of Austin events and people for a period of two years. The events depicted in the notebooks mainly cover the activities of Austin social clubs and prominent Austinites. While this is a small collection, it does offer researchers a two-year compilation of Austin’s noteworthy events and people. The original arrangement of the notebooks has been maintained. They have been removed from their original bindings and placed in acid-free folders.
The Goldwin E. Anderson Notebooks had been deposited at the Austin Branch Library’s historical collection. In November 1984 the Special Collections and Preservation Division, working under the auspices of a Dr. Scholl Foundation Grant, processed the collection and transferred it to its current location for proper archival storage.
The Goldwin E. Anderson Notebooks are available for research in the Special Collections and Preservation Division Reading Room on the ninth floor of the Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60605. The collection does not circulate, although photocopy and photoreproduction services are available depending upon the condition of the original materials. First-time patrons to Special Collections must present photo identification and complete a Reader Registration Form. Telephone inquiries on this collection and other Special Collections holdings can be directed to (312) 747-4875.
