Think the Fire burned your chance to discover what Chicago was like in its early days? Think again! Come join us as we explore a gold mine of pre-Fire treasures, many drawn from the Newberry’s collections, including maps, diaries, church records, newspapers, and sheet music. Selected primary source readings will further inform our discussions about what life was really like for early Chicagoans. Four sessions.
