CAA invites you to join your fellow archivists, librarians, and records managers for a tour of the Chicago Park District Archives, led by historian Julia Bachrach. The Archives holds documents, photographs and other valuable records relating to parkland and recreational facilities of the city. A very special part of the tour will be the recently-discovered Japanese sliding door panels from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition (see here and here for more info). Don’t miss it!
Please register for this event. If you are unable to attend, please contact email@example.com and provide at least 24 hours notice so we can take you off the RSVP list. Due to limited space, this is a members-only event. Joining CAA is quick and easy! In the event that registration does not fill, we will open this event to the general public on September 17.
