Thanks, Chicago History Journal!
Sharon Williams, who runs the Chicago History Journal, mentioned this site on her blog today! I’ve added her site to the “Links” list, if you want to check it out.
Here’s her excerpt:
“There’s a new blog on the Century of Progress Exhibition, but with a wonderful twist. While “snooping through a closet at my grandmother’s house” about 10 years ago, Kelly Cook found a treasure. It was an almost daily account, written by a family friend, of her then 12-year old grandmother’s journey from a small town in South Dakota and her visit to the 1933-34 Chicago World’s Fair. The letters are charming and filled with detail. You’ll enjoy Chicago 1934: A Trip to the Fair. Love them primary resources!”
We also have a link on her list of links, under “Century of Progress”. Thanks, Sharon!
