The Newberry's collections contain extensive research materials relating to the history of Chicago and the Midwest, including their settlement, growth, politics, and eclectic inhabitants.

Featured here is a selection of digitized items that explore the history of the Windy City and its surrounding area. This digital collection will grow as we continue to make these primary source documents freely available online.
