UIC Library to open Richard J. Daley Collection

“A larger-than-life montage of the Daley family is among artifacts from the Richard J. Daley administration that curators at the University of Illinois at Chicago are preparing to unveil as part of a new exhibit from the late former mayor’s six terms in office. The photos, memorabilia and documents that make up the collection will be housed in a 2,550-square-foot room in the Richard J. Daley Library’s Special Collections Department and will be available for viewing by the public starting Thursday. The items were bequeathed to the library many years ago by the mayor’s wife, Eleanor. Creation of the UIC campus was one of Daley’s proudest accomplishments.” (via Chicago Tribune)
