Size: 4.5 linear feet, 247 photographs, 15 oversize folders
Repository: Chicago Public Library, Harold Washington Library Center, Special Collections, 400 S. State St., Chicago, IL 60605
Collection Number: Archives_WCC
Provenance: The Collection was housed in Chicago Public Library’s Woodlawn Branch Library. In the 1980s Special Collections, working with a Dr. Scholl Foundation grant, transferred and processed the collection to make it fully available to the public. 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 Lincolniana was removed from the WCC collection and placed with existing Collections. Additional material has been added to the collection over time from various donors and sources. Box 12, folders 1-18 were transferred from the Bessie Coleman Branch. Photograph 1.247 was transferred from the Beverly Morgan Park Collection.
Access: No restrictions
