When James Wadsworth moved to what is now the Woodlawn area in 1859, he found a sparsely inhabited expanse of low lying marsh land and heavily wooded forest tracts. At that time, there were only five homes in the Woodlawn area. In 1881, Edward B. Springer moved his family to Kenwood Avenue, just south of Sixty-third Street. Although the area had undergone some development, Springer later recalled that his nearest neighbor lived at the corner of Fifty-fifth Street and Dorchester Avenue. According to Springer: Our life in Woodlawn was a hard and strenuous one. We were pioneers in a lonely location without home, conveniences or comforts. Gas, water, sewer, side-walks, telephones, mail service or deliveries were not part of our lives.As true with other Chicago neighborhoods, real estate speculation and transportation links to the Loop contributed heavily to Woodlawn's development. The annexation of Woodlawn to Chicago in 1889, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 and the propinquity of the University of Chicago to Woodlawn all aided in the area's remarkable growth. By the 1920s, the square mile Woodlawn neighborhood, bordered to the north by the Midway, to the east by Stony Island Avenue, to the south by Sixty-seventh Street and to the west by Cottage Grove Avenue, boasted over 20,000 residences. Sixty-third Street, that once dusty country road had been transformed to Chicago's busiest commercial district south of the Loop. Where in the 1890s Woodlawn was served by only eleven Illinois Central trains per day, by 1920, the ICRR had two hundred and fifty trains per day stopping at the Sixty-third Street station.
The Historical Society of Woodlawn (HSW) chronicled this extraordinary pattern of development. It collected documents from the area's residents, business establishments, churches, schools, and clubs and organizations. The HSW's collection formed the basis for the WCC. Material in the collections dates from the 1850s to the 1970s. Although it contains some relevant information for the genealogist, the WCC should prove to a be a valuable research tool for scholars and other interested parties concerned with the social, cultural, commercial and demographic development of Woodlawn.
Several topics were separated from the WCC and formed into individual collections. For example, the Papers of Clarence Darrow, the Records of the Historical Society of Woodlawn, the Records of United Woodlawn, Inc., and the Records of the Associated Clubs of Woodlawn were formed, either because of their size or their significance, into separate collections. Material relating to the World's Columbian Exposition, Century of Progress Exposition, Chicagana and Lincolniana was removed from WCC collection and placed with existing collections.

The Woodlawn Community Collection (WCC) exists today largely because of the foresighted efforts of the Historical Society of Woodlawn (HSW). For almost a thirty year period, the HSW diligently carried out its mission of documenting Woodlawn's historic past. Founded in 1938 and flourishing until the mid 1960's, the HSW retained a close relationship with the Woodlawn Branch Library throughout its thirty year existence. The collection activities were initially under the direction of Miss Julia Baker, Woodlawn Branch Librarian.
In 1983, the Special Collections Division of the Chicago Public Library received a grant from the Scholl Foundation to collect, process and preserve the unique heritage of Chicago's neighborhoods. As part of the grant project, the WCC was processed between July and October 1984. The WCC was transferred to the Special Collections Division and is currently available for research by scholars and other interested persons.
Several topics were separated from the WCC and formed into individual collections. For example, the Papers of Clarence Darrow, the Papers of the Historical Society of Woodlawn, the Papers of United Woodlawn, Inc., and the Papers of the Associated Clubs of Woodlawn were formed, either because of their size or their significance, into separate collections. Material relating to the World's Columbian Exposition, Century of Progress Exposition, Chicago and Linolniana was removed from the WCC collection and placed with existing Collections.
The Woodlawn Community Collection is available to the public for research in the Special Collections and Preservation Division Reading Room on the 9th floor of the Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center, 400 South State Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60605. The collection does not circulate, although photocopy and photo reproduction 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.
Selected photocopies and duplicate materials are available for use at the Woodlawn Branch Library.
