HISTORICAL NOTE:
Organized to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's voyage to the New World, the World's Columbian Exposition was held in Jackson Park, Chicago, between May and October, 1893. An estimated twenty-seven million visitors from around the world visited the fair during that time. The fair is recognized today as one of the defining moments of American cultural history and was especially influential in the fields of architecture and urban planning, laying the groundwork for the "City Beautiful" movement of the early 20th century. Also known as "the White City" for its uniformly white buildings, numerous architects, artists, and engineers--including Daniel H. Burnham; Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan; Richard Morris Hunt; McKim, Mead, and White; Frederick Law Olmsted; Mary Cassatt; and Augustus St. Gaudens--collaborated to construct monumental Beaux-arts and classically-inspired buildings and sculpture on reclaimed swampland along the lakefront south of Chicago's downtown. Apart from the many serious-minded exhibitions of science, technology, art, and the humanities, the exposition was also famous for its Midway Plaisance, an area of ethnic villages, sideshow attractions, and the site of the world's first Ferris Wheel. With a few exceptions, the fair's buildings were destroyed by fire or demolition in 1894.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
Within this collection are various materials pertaining to all aspects of the fair, from initial preparations to specific buildings and exhibitors. Series I, Photographs and Postcards, consists of photographs and postcards of exposition buildings, events, and exhibits. Series II, Stereocards, contains black and white and hand-colored stereocard views of buildings and events of the fair; all views were taken c.1893. Series III, Drawings, consists of one watercolor rendering of the Transportation Building and a surrogate access photograph. Series IV, Printed Matter, is comprised of books, serials, published articles, guides, maps, brochures, invitations, a stock certificate, tickets, passes, and other types of souvenir items. Series V, Scrapbooks, is composed of a two-volume scrapbook compiled by Halsey Ives, Chief of the Fine Arts Department of the exposition, that contains newspaper articles and correspondence written between May 1890 and January 1896. The final series, Memorabilia, contains a registry book for a prize awarded at the fair for the most accurate guess of the final number of attendees.
