Series Descriptions

Series 1: Biographical Data. Predominantly 1930s.

Most of the manuscript material included in this Series was solicited or compiled by members of the South Shore Historical Society during the late 1930s and 1940s. David Bird of the Society was an amateur genealogist and it was he who drew up the many family genealogies and personal biographies found here. The collection also contains material contributed by South Shore residents—personal reminiscences and many photographs.

Items in both the Biographical Data Manuscript Series and the Portrait & Family Photographs Series of the Photographs are arranged alphabetically by family name.

Series 2: Business Establishments. 1890s-1940s.

This Series contains material about or produced by South Shore area businesses. Kinds of material include company newsletters; theater and concert programs; brochures; and a ticket to the 1917 World Series at Comiskey Park.

Items are arranged alphabetically by name of the business and cross references are provided to other manuscript Series and to the Photographs.

Series 3: Religious Institutions. 1902-1908.

Newsletters; Dedication programs; Yearbooks.

Items having to do with club activities are also included—programs, invitations, meeting announcements, etc.

Materials are arranged under three broad subheadings according to the purposes and interests of the group. These headings are "Civic," "Business," and "Social." Within these subdivisions items are arranged alphabetically by the name of the organization.

Records from organizations affiliated with particular institutions that themselves have files in other manuscript Series will be found with the records of those parent organizations, e. g. School PTAs.

The Clubs & Organizations section of the Photographs contains many photographs of people prominent in South Shore organizations, most notably the portraits of the Presidents of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Windsor Park Woman’s Club.

Cross references are included in the Box and Folder Inventory.

Extensive cross references are made to other manuscript Series, to the photographs in the Photographs, to Oversize material and to the collection of maps.

Series 9: Schools. 1892-1977.

This Series contains material relating to the many schools in the South Shore area. Included are records from elementary schools, high schools and vocational and community colleges. The kinds of material to be found include yearbooks; personal reminiscences; commencement programs; school newspapers; course listings and PTA material.

This Series contains material related to several kinds of transportation: Railways; Subways; Waterways and Bus Routes. In general items are arranged according to the kind of service involved.

There are also several folders containing material on the history of transportation in Chicago.

Series 12: War Time Activities. 1940-45.

This Series contains several items concerned with civilian defense and civilian preparedness practices.

These letters are arranged alphabetically by the writer’s last name.

The War Time Activities section of the Photographs contains a number of group photographs of service inductees. Individuals in these pictures are almost certainly unidentified however, and no dates are provided.
