UIC makes bid for Obama presidential library and museum

“The University of Illinois at Chicago announced Sunday that it wants to house President Barack Obama’s future library and museum, joining a growing list of contenders. UIC is exploring at least five sites on its Near West Side campus, said university spokesman Bill Burton. The university started discussing the idea of an Obama presidential library in May and is waiting for the White House to make an announcement before possibly moving forward with any proposals, he said. In a statement, the school’s chancellor pointed to several reasons why UIC would make a good venue.” (via Chicago Tribune)
