Beschreibung

The personal -- and often intimate -- diaries of fledgling journalist and entrepreneur John Mansir Wing create a unique portrait of a rough-and-tumble Chicago in the first few years following the Civil War. Wing writes of a city filled with new immigrants, ex-soldiers, and the thriving merchant class making its fortunes from both before the Great Fire of 1871.

Portrait

Robert Williams is Assistant Design Manager of the University of Chicago Press and a longtime historian of printing. Paul F. Gehl is curator of the John M. Wing collection at the Newberry Library. Richard A. Schawarzlose is a professor at the Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University.
