Natarus papers document economic development in Chicago

The Burton F. Natarus Papers are processed and available for researchers to use in the Daley Library Special Collections department. A finding aid is available online.

Natarus served as a Chicago alderman for 36 years, representing residents of the Loop, River North, and Streeterville neighborhoods during a time of rapid change and great improvement. The collection includes zoning ordinances, information about buildings reviewed by the Landmark Committee, correspondence, and scrapbooks of photographs and news articles. The materials contain decades of firsthand historical information about economic development, changes in residential and commercial districts, and funding for the arts in the city.

Researchers can contact Special Collections for information about using the collection., field_56ba6f8fdb00c
