Historical Note

The Chicago City-Wide Collection contains materials that overlap several neighborhoods.

Scope and Content

The Chicago City-Wide Collection consists of an initial accession and four supplemental accessions. Each accession consists of an assortment of manuscript, printed and photographic materials. The focus of this collection is general Chicago history, covering the city as a whole and the communities for which there is no separate neighborhood history collection. Materials on the Loop and Downtown areas can be found in this collection. Special strengths of the collection include historical and contemporary documentation of the 1871 Chicago Fire, a series of Chicago maps dating back to 1835, and early West and South Side Park Commission reports and maps.

The intellectual arrangement of Chicago City-Wide is topical. All material has been sorted into one of several series, described below. Certain items in the collection inherently fall through the cracks between these categories; for example, a 1923 map of the Chicago underworld is filed under "Clubs and Organizations" (See Oversize Folder 7). Within each series, material is arranged alphabetically except where indicated otherwise. Photographs, although listed and housed separately, are organized into corresponding series and include Portraits, Business Establishments, Religious Institutions, Clubs and Organizations, Residences, Schools, Streets, Transportation, and Historical Events such as the Chicago Fire.

To facilitate research, all photographs, regardless of accession, are listed together. A complete list of photographs can be found in the photograph finding guide.

The contents of the Initial Accession are described below. Supplements 1-4 are described separately, preceding their Container Lists.

Series 1: Biographical Data

Materials in this series include folders containing biographical sketches of many Chicagoans. Persons for whom there is a significant amount of information have their own folders, while those with sparse documentation are grouped together alphabetically in folders. About one quarter of the material consists of memorial resolutions presented to the family of Mayor Carter Henry Harrison, who was assassinated in 1893. These resolutions were acquired by The Chicago Public Library in 1905 and are an excellent study in 19th century calligraphy.

Series 8: Land Deeds

Material in this series consists of title abstracts to various plots of land. Researchers interested in this topic should also see Box 45, a computer print-out of First Land Purchases in Cook County, 1805-1885. This resource, produced by the Illinois State Archives, lists the name of its first owner, residence at time of purchase, date, price, legal description, and volume/page for the original recorded deed for each portion of acreage in Cook County. The originals are located in the Illinois State Archives in Springfield, Illinois. Researchers should be aware that the arrangement of these materials is by Township, Range, and Section Number. There is no alphabetical index of purchasers.

Material in this series relates to libraries in Chicago, public and private. Supplement 2, Series 9: Libraries | Supplement 3, Series 9: Libraries | Photographs, Series 9: Libraries

Series 10: Miscellaneous

Material in this series does not fit neatly into other series as defined. Supplement 1, Series 10: Miscellaneous | Supplement 2, Series 10: Miscellaneous | Photographs, Series 10: Miscellaneous

Series 11: Municipal Agencies

Items in this series are arranged alphabetically by the name of the agency or, in the case of articles about some aspect of government, by author or title. The most significant material in this series consists of items from the Chicago Plan Commission, which was developed out of Daniel Burnham’s 1909 Plan of Chicago (See Call Number NA9127.C4C7 1909). Any kind of government activity is found among materials in this series--for example, material on the Post Office, while not a municipal government body, is located here. Utilities (gas, electric and water) have been placed here rather than under Series II: Business Establishments. Tax bills and tax receipts have been grouped together here under the heading "Taxes." General Chicago Board of Education material is found here while items on specific schools is located in Series XIII: Schools. Information on the Chicago Transit Authority, while a city agency, is located in Series XV: Transportation. Oversize material consists primarily of maps of the City’s division into wards and maps of the individual wards. These are cataloged under the name of the agency that produced them, either the Board of Election Commissioners or the Department of Public Works.

Also of importance (and exceptional beauty) are 1871-1872 oversize maps of Central (now Garfield), Douglas and Humboldt parks, the first three West Side parks. (Related material on Douglas, Garfield and Humboldt parks can be found in the Lawndale-Crawford Community Collection, the East Garfield Park Community Collection, and Humboldt Park Community Collection, respectively.)

Of special note in the general materials are a series of Board of Education "Qualifying Exams" given to prospective teachers (1916-1941) and an excellent set of Fact Sheets for nearly 200 schools on the West Side.

Series 2: Business Establishments

Subseries B: Chicago Business Papers, 1881-1883

This material (90 items in 70 folders) contains business papers dating from 1881 the retail house of Foltz and Givens (Abingdon, Illinois) and correspondence and from financial papers (1882-1883) for overdue bill collections by the Union National Bank of Abingdon. The materials were collected by T.E. Givens, who was a cashier with the Union National Bank. The materials are on the letterheads and checks of Chicago businesses and banks, which is of value to researchers looking at late 19th century advertising or for the addresses of now-defunct businesses. This material was transferred to Special Collections from the Sulzer Regional Library in February 1989.

Scope and Content

Supplement 2 consists of manuscript material within the series of Biographical Data, Business Establishments, Cemeteries, Religious Institutions, Clubs and Organizations, Historical Events and Sketches, Hospitals, Libraries, Miscellaneous, Municipal Agencies, Museums, Parks, Residences, Schools, Streets, Transportation, Viewbooks, and Wartime Activities. The largest series is that of Business Establishments, which is rich in turn of the century business interests. Also of note are documents concerning lawsuits brought against the Board of Education by taxpayers over the issue of 1929 tax anticipation warrants, given to the Chicago Public Library by John Nuveen & Co. (See Schools, Box 60, Folders 9-38). In addition, an exhaustive history of the Chicago Area United Service Organization is provided by their scrapbooks (See Wartime Activities, World War II, Boxes 64-66).

Also included are a series of 134 of at least 171 maps of Chicago city parks, produced by a Works Progress Administration project in the 1930s (Oversize 112). An index to these maps follows the inventory of Oversize Material. Each map delineates the legal history of the park shown. Original numbering, alphabetical by park name, has been maintained. These materials were given to the Mayor’s office during the term of Harold Washington, and transferred to the Chicago City-Wide Collection from the papers of Harold Washington in March of 1991.

Photographs included in this supplement come from a variety of sources, detailed in the Photograph inventory below. Photographs are arranged by series and to facilitate research, all photographs, regardless of accession, are listed together. A complete list of photographs can be found in the photograph finding guide.

Supplement 3

Boxes 67-86; Oversize Folders 113-116; Photographs 15.1-20.50

Scope and Content

This supplement contains manuscript materials, Oversize Materials, and Photographs arranged into the series designations of Biographical Data, Business Establishments, Cemeteries, Religious Institutions, Clubs and Organizations, Historical Events and Sketches, Hospitals, Libraries, Municipal Agencies, Museums, Parks, Residences, Schools, Streets, Transportation, Viewbooks and Wartime Activities.

Materials in this supplement come from four principle sources. The first and largest is a transfer of materials from the Municipal Reference Library of the city of Chicago in the summer of 1991, which includes many pamphlets regarding businesses and municipal offices from the 1910s through 1930s. Of particular note are brochures of a number of public and private mass transportation companies in the 1920s.

A second large body of material comes from a dismantled scrapbook prepared as a student project in 1962 by Joan Abell, of the Chicago Lawn neighborhood. The theme of this scrapbook was "contemporary Chicago," and Abell therefore collected an array of pamphlets, brochures, photographs, postcards and advertisements from businesses in the Loop and some outlying neighborhoods. Many items throughout this series dated "circa 1962" are from this scrapbook. In addition photographs 18.1-18.28 are postcards from this scrapbook.

A third set of records is a series of publications concerning the problems surrounding the formation of the Chicago Transit Authority and the attempt to construct subway railroads in Chicago. These materials were deaccessioned from the Baker Library of Harvard University in 1985. They are located in the series Transportation, subseries Mass Transit, Boxes 80-81. Finally, many materials in this supplement were purchased from dealers in 1990-1991.

Of note in the series Schools is an oversize volume of drawings from the Chicago Public Schools earning Highest Recognition at the Paris Exposition of 1900. This volume is located in Box 86. A full inventory of artists and subjects is provided following the listing of Oversize Materials.

Photographs in this supplement come largely from the plates of disbound publications. Provenance is noted in the Inventory when known. Of note is a set of fifty Stereographs (20.1-20.50) entitled "A Trip Through Sears, Roebuck and Co." To facilitate research, all photographs, regardless of accession, are listed together. A complete list of photographs can be found in the photograph finding guide.

Photographs

Scope and Content / Provenance

Original accession, 1.1 – 6.89

Photographs with the prefix "1" come from a variety of sources but are primarily from the West Side Historical Society.

Photographs with the prefix "2" are portraits taken from an incomplete copy of Biographical Sketches of the Leading Men of Chicago, Written by the best talent of the Northwest. Photographically Illustrated by J[ohn]. Carbutt, Chicago: Wilson and St. Clair, 1868. Each photograph is accompanied by a facsimile signature. See photographs 17.1-17.8 for portraits from an additional copy of this publication.

Photographs with the prefix "3" are photos of the Sanitary District Drainage Canal/Chicago River and are listed under the subject heading of Municipal Agencies. The first 24 of these photographs are one set, photographed in 1942.

Photographs with the prefix "4" are 11 x 14 inch negatives of original engravings found in the 1866 Chicago Illustrated published by Jevne and Almini. Chicago Illustrated was issued serially in 13 parts, January to December, 1866. Two copies of the original publication, slightly variant from one to the other, are cataloged in the Special Collections and Preservation Division, call number NA735.C4J4. Each part contained four engravings of Chicago scenes, and a page of text about each.

Photographs with the prefix "5" are stereographs. Stereographs were first made in the late 1850s and continued to be produced up through the time of the Century of Progress Exposition in 1933. William C. Darrah in The World of Stereographs (Gettysburg, Pa.: Darrah, 1977, Folio TR780.D35 in the Special Collections and Preservation Division) gives this synopsis of Chicago in stereo:

The classic views of Chicago were produced by John Carbutt in the mid 1860s. These splendid stereographs give an excellent view of the city and its principal buildings. Carbutt, one of America’s greatest photographers, turned to photographing the West and then, in the later 1860s, to publishing the western views of other photographers. In 1870 he moved to Philadelphia, where he engaged in mechanical photo printing and dealing in supplies for these processes.

On October 8-9, 1871, the great Chicago Fire wrought vast destruction. Lovejoy and Foster, recently established in the city, issued what is probably the best series of the burned-out district. A score of photographers hurried to record the devastation. Among the most interesting views are those by P. B. Greene and T. T. Sweeney. As an aside, dozens of photographers lost their studios, negative files and records. Many operators quit the business completely and others moved to new localities. Carbutt’s old gallery was destroyed by the fire.

Rebuilding of the city was completed within a year. . . . Melander and Lovejoy and Foster stereographed the newly finished hotels and mercantile streets. By 1876 Melander had issued about one hundred and twenty titles. The Union Stockyards and the meat packing establishments of Armour, Cudahy and Swift were photographed again and again from 1873 to 1925. Every stage of meat processing was well illustrated by stereo views.

The Columbian World’s Fair in 1893 was covered by many photographers. B.W. Kilburn Company, designated "official photographer," issued about 600 views of the exhibition. The Century of Progress World’s Fair . . . was illustrated by a fine 100-card Keystone set selected from approximately 200 available negatives.

The majority of the stereographs in this collection appear to be from the 1860s and immediately following the Fire in 1871.

Photographs with the prefix "6" are picture postcards. Most are in color, although it is color added to black-and-white images. Dates reflect postmarks.

Supplement 1, 7.1 – 9.9

Photographs with the prefix "7" are rehearsal and production photographs of various productions at the Theater on the Lake, in Lincoln Park, primarily between 1960 and 1963. Productions were the work of various neighborhood park theater groups. The photographs were collected in the late 1970s by the Lincoln Park Photo Documentation Project. These photographs are listed under the subject heading of Clubs and Organizations.

Photographs with the prefix "8" show the renovation of a basement apartment at 906 W. Wrightwood, Lincoln Park, July 1946-June 1947. This was the home of Joseph C. and Lydia Schmidt. Photographs were taken by professional photographer Martin J. Schmidt, brother of Joseph Schmidt, and donated to the Lincoln Park Photo Documentation Project in the 1970s.

Photographs with the prefix "9" are of miscellaneous subject designations. 9.3 was donated by the Saskatoon Public Library. 9.4-9.9 are the gift of James Francus, purchased by Francus from the Dicke Estate.

Supplement 2, 10.1 – 14.26

Photographs with the prefix "10" are stereographs of the ruins of Chicago after the 1871 Fire. All except 10.6 were photographed by "Ely" in Racine, Wisconsin. Photograph 10.6 is credited to John A. Philleo.

Photographs with the prefix "11" are color postcards. Dates given are postmarks. Photographs 11.3-11.17 are from historical paintings by Lawrence C. Earle, in the Banking Room of the Central Trust Co. building at 152 Monroe Street. Gift of Ralph G. Newman, 1996.

Photographs with the prefix "12" are portraits removed from a disbound, partial copy of Biographical Sketches of Leading Men published in the late 1870s. The text is located in Box 55, Folder 11a.

Photographs with the prefix "13" were transferred from the Body Politic Theater Collection. They are views presumed to be taken in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in the late 1970s.

Photographs with the prefix "14" are from a variety of sources.

Supplement 3, 15.1 - 20.50

Photographs with the prefix "15" are from Rand, McNally & Co.’s Pictorial Chicago and Illustrated World’s Columbian Exposition containing views of principal buildings, residences, streets, parks, monuments, etc. (Chicago: Rand, McNally & Company, 1893). The book was transferred from the Portage-Cragin Branch of the Chicago Public Library.

Photographs with the prefix "16" are from a disbound volume, Chicago: Souvenir Album of Chicago and the Columbian Exposition (S. L. Stein, 1893). 16.66-16.75 are lithographs taken from watercolor sketches of the World’s Columbian Exposition grounds by C. Graham. They were presumably prepared from building designs to be used for publicity while the fairgrounds were being constructed.

Photographs with the prefix "17" are plates which originally appeared in Biographical Sketches of the Leading Men of Chicago, Photographically Illustrated by J. Carbutt (Chicago: Wilson and St. Clair, 1868). Includes facsimile of subject’s signature and biographical sketch. See also photographs 2.1-2.34 of the original accession for additional plates from this book.

Photographs with the prefix "18" are postcards from the Joan Abell Scrapbook.

Photographs with the prefix "19" are from miscellaneous sources.

Photographs with the prefix "20" are a set of stereographs entitled "A Trip Through Sears, Roebuck & Co." This series was published in 1904 and distributed until 1930. Each view is accompanied by descriptive text on its reverse.
