Generous contributions from the community allowed the Library to acquire the core of the collection in 1974 from Chicago attorney Robert L. Huttner who originally gathered the material. The Library has continued to build this collection adding hundreds of new items since its acquisition.

All materials from this collection are available for viewing and use in the James K. Hosmer Special Collections Dept. Please review our instructions for visitors before you come to the library.
