Stabilization of the Chicago Urban League Records

The University of Illinois of Chicago Library holds the records of the Chicago Urban League. The Chicago Urban League is one of the oldest and most successful African American social service and advocacy organizations in the nation. The records of the Chicago Urban League document the history of the League and of African Americans in Chicago in office files, case records, publicity material, photographs, artifacts, and a newspaper clipping collection. Over one half of the collection has been stored at the library's offsite storage warehouse, which is not climate controlled. The records will be moved to the Library's Special Collections Department where they will be rehoused in appropriate archival materials.
