Abstract

The Chicago City-Wide Collection consists of a wide assortment of manuscript, printed and photographic materials on multiple topics. It includes biographical, business, cultural, educational, municipal, recreation, religious, social and transportation source materials. The collection is designed to gather together materials that relate to the city as a whole and to include materials from Chicago communities that fall outside of the Library’s existing neighborhood collection strengths. In addition, the collection covers the Loop and Downtown areas and contains a wide range of guide and souvenir viewbooks geared toward tourism; sketches and images from historical events, especially the Chicago Fire of 1871; a series of Chicago maps dating back to 1835; and several significant maps of Chicago parks, including several 19th century maps for West and South Park Commissions and 134 of 171 maps created as part of a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in the 1930s.

Biographical/Historical

Chicago is the traditional homelands of Hoocąk (Winnebago/Ho’Chunk), Jiwere (Otoe), Nutachi (Missouria), and Baxoje (Iowas); Kiash Matchitiwuk (Menominee); Meshkwahkîha (Meskwaki); Asâkîwaki (Sauk); Myaamiaki (Miami), Waayaahtanwaki (Wea), and Peeyankihšiaki (Piankashaw); Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo); Inoka (Illini Confederacy); Anishinaabeg (Ojibwe), Odawak (Odawa), and Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi). Seated atop a continental divide, the Chicago region is located at the intersection of several great waterways, leading the area to become the site of travel and healing for many Tribes.

Chicago’s first permanent non-indigenous resident was a trader named Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, a free Black man from Haiti whose father was a French sailor and whose mother as an African slave. He came here in the 1770s via the Mississippi River from New Orleans with his Native American wife, and their home stood at the mouth of the Chicago River. In 1803, the U.S. government built Fort Dearborn at what is now the corner of Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive (look for the bronze markers in the pavement). It was destroyed in 1812 following the Battle of Fort Dearborn, rebuilt in 1816, and permanently demolished in 1857.

The modern city was incorporated in 1837 by Northern businessmen and grew rapidly from real estate speculation and the realization that it had a commanding position in the emerging inland transportation network, based on lake traffic and railroads, controlling access from the Great Lakes into the Mississippi River basin.

Despite the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that destroyed the Central Business District, the city grew exponentially becoming the nation's rail center and the dominant Midwestern center for manufacturing, commerce, finance, higher education, religion, broadcasting, sports, jazz, and high culture. The city was also a magnet for European immigrants—at first Germans, Irish and Scandinavians, then from the 1890s to 1914, Jews, Czechs, Poles and Italians.

Large numbers of African Americans migrated from the South starting in the World War I era as part of the Great Migration. Mexicans started arriving after 1910, and Puerto Ricans after 1945. The Cook County suburbs grew rapidly after 1945. Deindustrialization after 1970 closed the Union Stock Yards and most of the steel mills and factories, but the city retained its role as a financial and transportation hub. Increasingly it emphasized its service roles in medicine, higher education, and tourism.

Scope and Contents

The Chicago City-Wide Collection consists of a wide assortment of manuscript, printed and photographic materials on multiple topics. It includes biographical, business, cultural, educational, municipal, recreation, religious, social and transportation source materials. The collection is designed to gather together materials that relate to the city as a whole and to include materials from Chicago communities that fall outside of the Library’s existing neighborhood collection strengths. In addition, the collection covers the Loop and Downtown areas and contains a wide range of guide and souvenir viewbooks geared toward tourism; sketches and images from historical events, especially the Chicago Fire of 1871; a series of Chicago maps dating back to 1835; and several significant maps of Chicago parks, including several 19th century mapsfor West and South Park Commissions and 134 of 171 maps created as part of a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in the 1930s.

The organization of the collection is by topic. All material has been sorted into one of 20 series descriptions. Each of these subject designations was meant to encompass a variety of examples. As such, there will be some items that may be less clearly related to the topic area than others and items that could reasonably be filed under more than one subject area. For example, a 1923 map of the Chicago underworld is filed under “Clubs and Organizations” (Oversize Folder 7) since the gangs that comprised the underworld in question were a type of organization. Sports teams, however, have been filed as businesses. Each series contains a more specific Scope and Contents Note to guide that subject’s materials and organization. Researchers working at the intersection of themes are encouraged to search this guide broadly.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The Chicago City-Wide Collection consists of an initial accession and several supplemental accessions:

Initial Collection

The initial collection spans Boxes 1-49; Oversize Folders 1-95; and Photographs and Graphic Materials with the prefixes “1” through “6”.

The materials came from a wide range of sources: transfers from other Chicago Public Library branches, libraries across the nation, purchases, and private donations. Where appropriate, the provenance of individual items has been noted on folders. The T.E. Givens Collection (Box 9, Folder 24 through Box 10, Folder 31) was transferred to Special Collections from the Sulzer Regional Library in February 1989.

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 John Carbutt, Chicago: Wilson and St. Clair, 1868.

Photographs with the prefix “4” are 11x14 inch negatives of engravings found in the 1866 Chicago Illustrated published by Jevne and Almini. A bound volume and parts edition of this title is also available (call number NA735.C4J4).

Photographs with the prefix “5” are stereographs, the bulk of which depict the Chicago Fire of 1871.

Graphic materials with the prefix “6” are postcards.

Supplement 1

Supplement 1 is comprised of Boxes 42, 50-54, Oversize Folders 96-111 and Photographs and Graphic Materials with the prefixes “7” through “9”. The items come from a wide range of sources: transfers from other Chicago Public Library branches, libraries across the nation, purchases and private donations.

The materials in this supplement were added to the following Series: Biographical Data, Business Establishments, Religious Institutions, Clubs and Organizations, Historical Events and Sketches, Miscellaneous, Municipal Agencies, Parks, Schools, Streets, Transportation and Viewbooks. Supplement 1 includes the 19th-century imprints and manuscripts that James Francus purchased from the Dicke Estate and gifted to the Library.

Photographs with the prefix “7” and “8” were originally gathered as part of the Lincoln Park Photo Documentation Project in the late 1970s.

Photographs with the prefix “9” are of miscellaneous subject designations. The Saskatoon Public Library donated Photograph 9.3. James Francus donated Photographs 9.4-9.9 that were acquired from the Dicke Estate.

Supplement 2

Supplement 2 is comprised of Boxes 55-66, Oversize Folder 112 and Photographs with the prefixes “10” through “14”. The items come from a wide range of sources: transfers from other Chicago Public Library branches, libraries across the nation, purchases and private donations.

The largest document addition was to Series 2: Business Establishments. Other notable additions include the Board of Education lawsuits donated to Chicago Public Library by John Nuveen & Co. (Box 60, Folders 9-38), the World War II scrapbooks (Boxes 64-66) and a series of 134 maps of Chicago parks, produced by a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project in the 1930s (Oversize Folder 112). The WPA Maps were given to the Mayor’s office during the term of Harold Washington and transferred from the papers of Harold Washington in 1991.

Photographs with the prefix “10” are stereographs of the ruins of Chicago after the 1871 Fire.

Photographs with the prefix “11” are color postcards. 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. These cards were the gift of Ralph G. Newman in 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. It is presumed that these views were taken in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in the late 1970s.

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

Supplement 3

Supplement 3 is comprised of Boxes 67-86, Oversize Folders 113-116 and Photographs with the prefixes “15” through “20”. The items come from a wide range of sources: transfers from other Chicago Public Library branches, libraries across the nation, purchases and private donations.

Materials in this supplement came from four principle sources. The first and largest was a transfer of materials from the Chicago’s Municipal Reference Library in 1991. The transfer contained business, private mass transit and municipal pamphlets from the 1910s-1930s.

The second source of materials was taken from a dismantled scrapbook created as a student project in 1962 by Joan Abell of the Chicago Lawn neighborhood. The theme of this scrapbook was “contemporary Chicago,” and it included an array of pamphlets, brochures, photographs, postcards and advertisements from businesses in the Loop and some outlying neighborhoods. Many of the items in the Chicago City-Wide Collection dated “circa 1962” are from this scrapbook. Postcards 18.1-18.28 are also from this scrapbook.

The third group of documents was deaccessioned from the Baker Library of Harvard University in 1985. These comprise a collection of publications on the formation of the Chicago Transit Authority and the attempt to construct subway railroads in Chicago (Boxes 80-81).

Finally, the fourth group of materials was purchased from dealers between 1990 and 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 and is described as Subseries C in the Schools series through a full inventory of artists and subjects.

The Photographs in Supplement 3 are primarily plates derived from disbound publications.

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 and Co., 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). Photographs 16.66-16.75 are lithographs derived from watercolor sketches of the World’s Columbian Exposition grounds by C. Graham.

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) [See also call no. F548.25.B56 1868]

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 50 stereographs entitled “A Trip Through Sears, Roebuck & Co.”

Supplement 4 is comprised of Boxes 87-101 and Oversize Folders 117-129. The items come from a wide range of sources: transfers from other Chicago Public Library branches, libraries across the nation, purchases, and private donations.

Supplement 5

Supplement 5 is comprised of Boxes 102-116 and 143; Oversize Folders 130-148; and 637 photographs. Photograph and Graphic Materials with the prefix “21”.

Series 6: Historical Events and Sketches, 1821-2020, undated

Scope and Contents

Series 6 contains manuscript and printed materials related to Chicago’s achievements as a city, notable events in its history and its general geographic landscape. Topics include the Eastland Disaster, Fort Dearborn, and the 1968 Democratic National Convention. However, the Chicago Fire of 1871 comprises the largest group of materials on a single event and includes numerous contemporaneous newspapers alongside personal accounts. Additional topics include the City’s anniversaries, architecture, culture, neighborhoods, and urbanization. The series contains articles, historical accounts, maps, newspapers, and publications.

Among the historical items is a set of 22 maps published as Surfical Geology Maps by Harlan J. Bretz, between 1930-1932. Because of their broad coverage, these maps were transferred from the Englewood Community Collection, (nhrc-ecc) to the Chicago City-Wide Collection.

Series 11: Municipal Agencies, 1840-2019, undated

Scope and Contents

Series 11 contains documents and visual materials related to Chicago’s city agencies and its official city operations along with U.S. and Cook County government agencies and public utilities (including commericial operations). The documentation covers a range of urban administation including such areas as cultural affairs, emergency management, health, housing, public works, recreation, sanitation and water management. The available materials were created by City departments as well as by outside organizations and individuals who studied or collaborated on the public policy and services.

The materials available in the Municipal series reflect the nature of small transfers and donations of selected materials and represent only a portion of the total publications created by substantial government agencies and other civic organizations. Additional resources and publication years might be found in the Municipal Reference and Government Publications division of Chicago Public Library or in repositories that hold collections for the various independent commissions and groups that analyze public issues. Additionally, the names of various City departments have changed over the years. The agency name listed here is the one that appears on the document. Hence, researchers looking at the Department of Water Management may also want to consult alternative historical names or agencies with related functions such as Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago and Water Works. The materials for some municipal agencies such as the Chicago Park District, Chicago Board of Education, and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) material are located with like subject matter in Series 13: Parks, Series 15: Schools and Series 17: Transportation, respectively.

Arrangement

Series 11 is organized into 2 subseries: Subseries A: Documents, 1840-2019, undated and Subseries B: Photographs and Graphic Materials, 1865-1985, undated.

Series 11: Municipal Agencies, 1840-2019, undated

Subseries A: Documents, 1865-2019, undated

Scope and Contents

Subseries A contains a wide variety of manuscripts and publications related to government and municipal agencies along with public utilities. The documention includes booklets, brochures, flyers, guides, histories, maps, newsletters, ordinances, pamphlets, programs and reports.

Of note are a series of items created by the Chicago Plan Commission, a group that emerged to implement the vision put forth in Daniel Burnham’s 1909 Plan of Chicago (See Call Number NA9127.C4C7 1909), and a small selection of documents related to the 1945 Chicago Conference on Home Front Unity that was convened to examine interracial relations. The State of Illinois also produced a similar report (Box 144, Folder 16).

Subseries A also contains the typescript versions of the “Chicago at a Glance,” article series written for the Chicago Tribune in 1900 (Box 74, Folders 24-37). These documents were transferred from the History and Travel Division of the Chicago Public Library, where they were stored in one binder.

Oversize material consists primarily of wards and precinct maps created by the Board of Election Commissioners, permits issued with blueprints by the Department of Public Works and land use and redevelopment maps issued by various agencies.

Arrangement

Subseries A is arranged alphabetically by the name of the agency or, in the case of articles about some aspect of government, by author or title. Tax bills and tax receipts have been grouped together here under the heading “Taxes.”

Subseries A contains documentation on Chicago’s transportation by air, bicycle, freight tunnel, mass transit, motorcar, railroad and water. The bulk of the contents relate to mass transit and railroads.

These materials were deaccessioned from the Baker Library of Harvard University in 1985 and have been gathered together with the term, “Mass Transit consolidation” in Boxes 80-81.

The subseries also contains volumes 7-23 of the Chicago Surface Lines’ Surface Service Magazine, an 1855 brochure for the Illinois Central Railroad, annual reports for Chicago and Alton Railroad from 1864-1899, and several files on the problem of the South Side railway terminal. The latter material was transferred from the Municipal Reference Collection of Chicago Public Library

Arrangement

Subseries A is arranged alphabetically by method of transport (Air, Bicycle, Bridge, Freight Tunnel, Mass Transit, Motor, Railroad or Water) and then alphabetically within by agency or title of the document.
