The Chicago Genealogical Society and the Newberry Library Present
Chicago’s Greatest Year: 1893
A talk by author Joseph Gustaitis
There is an almost endless list of achievements that took place in Chicago in 1893. Chicago’s most important skyscraper was completed in 1893, and Frank Lloyd opened his office in the same year. African American physician and Chicagoan Daniel Hale Williams performed one of the first known open-heart surgeries in 1893. Sears and Roebuck was incorporated and William Wrigley invented Juicy Fruit gum that year. Find out about these and other Chicago achievements during a presentation by Joseph Gustaitis.
