The “Everywhere West” digital exhibit is based on an exhibition staged at the Newberry August 10 to October 16, 2010. It contains a selection of unique black-and-white photographs portraying the lives of Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad workers and the communities spawned by the company’s sprawling rail network.
Including digitized primary sources from the Newberry’s collection, contextual information, and discussion questions, this site features curricular resources to integrate the study of America’s religious diversity into introductory courses across the humanities.
Featuring archival documents and contextual essays on the literature of Chicago in connection with the unique urban, economic, and cultural history of the city, this collection includes items from Arthur Conan Doyle, Kate Chopin, Ben Hecht and many others.
