Biographical/Historical Note +/-

The Changing Chicago project was initiated by Jack Jaffe and sponsored by the Focus/Infinity Fund of Chicago to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the discovery of photography and the 50th anniversary of the Farm Security Administration's (FSA) documentary project that famously depicted depression-era farmers. As an urban version of the FSA project, Changing Chicago produced approximately 600 exhibition prints from 33 photographers selected to contribute. Photographer Wayne Cable participated in the project although his works aren't represented in the collection. The project had three goals: the creation of this Changing Chicago archive to be housed at the Chicago Historical Society; the creation of curated exhibitions at participating institutions during the spring of 1989; and the publication of the book, Changing Chicago: A Photodocumentary. Participating organizations included Chicago Office of Fine Arts, Chicago Public Library Cultural Center, Museum of Contemporary Photography of Columbia College, Field Museum of Natural History, and the Chicago Historical Society.

About This Finding Aid +/-

Creation: Finding aid encoded by Jill Wiercioch using Oxygen, 2015.
Language: Finding aid is written in English.
Other Finding Aids: Finding aid also submitted to the Explore Chicago Collections portal.

Processing Note:

In 2013, the collection was reorganized into 32 series--each series representing an individual artist with the final series including the portraits of the photographers commissioned for the project--and boxes of like materials were consolidated as much as possible. Boxes were renumbered to run consecutively throughout the collection, and folders were relabeled to reflect changes. Likewise, the PCP, PCN, and PCT call numbers were reassigned, and the b&w negatives were moved into cold storage with the color negatives and share the same PCN call number.

The new collection-level finding aid uses the artist's biographical data found in the 1991 artist-level finding aids. Subject headings come from the catalog records for the individual artists. The summaries and lists of items for each artist were adapted from the old finding aids and improved.

As of February 2014, two 20 x 24 inch archival storage boxes were not located (boxes 33 and 34). According to the original artist-level finding aids, these should contain the b&w exhibition photographs of Susan Crocker and Bob Thall (20 items per box).

Note: The count of 2201 b&w photographic prints includes the 40 missing prints, as well as the 34 artists' portraits commissioned for the exhibit. Also, one non-graphic item was missing from Richard Younker's materials; it is believed to be a copy of the Chicago Reader newspaper.
