From City Hall to the Newberry: The Journey of the 1857 Map of Lake Forest
Thursday, June 10 | 7pm on Zoom
Last year the 1857 Map of Lake Forest found its permanent home at the Newberry Library in Chicago. How it got there is quite a story! Tune in to learn the history of this valuable map and the educational value of the maps in the History Center, Newberry and the Dunn Museum collections. Joining the conversation will be Jim Akerman, Curator of Maps at the Newberry; Art Miller, Honorary Director of the Lake Forest Preservation Foundation; Heather Johnson, Curator at the Bess Bower Dunn Museum and Carol Summerfield, Executive Director of the History Center.
This program is presented with the Lake Forest Preservation Foundation who was instrumental in the conservation of the 1857 Map and its transit to the Newberry Library.
Virtual programming is made possible by the generous support of Madeleine B. Dugan
