1849 - 2010 WHEN FIRST INCORPORATED, Chicago was a swampy little town populated only by a few hundred people. Soon after, the historical Chicago Tribune (1849-1995) began chronicling the city’s challenges, achievements, and evolution into one of America’s finest cities.
The Chicago Tribune provided detailed accounts of the Great Fire of 1871, which killed hundreds, nearly destroyed the city, resulted in many reforms, and spurred new growth. In 1893 and 1909, the newspaper’s special Chicago Jubilee issues
described and celebrated the city’s tremendous progress. It also reported on the Progressive Movement, followed the works of Nobel Peace Prize-winning social reformer Jane Addams, exposed the activities of mobsters like Al Capone, and reported on the city’s machine politics. To incisively convey ideas, opinions, and emotions, the Chicago Tribune relied on Pulitzer Prizewinning John T. McCutcheon’s editorial cartoons.
To trace the development of Chicago and the Midwest, and to study subjects as diverse as politics, architecture, social reform,
and art, start with the historical Chicago Tribune.
