Hyde Park Historical Society Archives Updated and Expanded

The Hyde Park Historical Society is pleased to announce the completion of a year-long project with Special Collections Research Center at Regenstein Library to expand and update the archives.  The publicly available material in the collection has increased from the original 30 boxes, collected and organized by our original Archivist, Jean Block, to 179 boxes.  The added material was largely collected by Emeritus Archivist Stephen A. Treffman and is now organized into a detailed 92 page finding tool, which is available online and 100% searchable.  In addition, the collection of 119 boxes of materials from the Hyde Park Cooperative Society has been organized with a separate finding tool, also available on line.  Finally, the Hyde Park Kenwood Razed Buildings collection finding tool has been revised to include street names and numbers.

Those interested in exploring the archives will find a wealth of fascinating material related to Hyde Park.  Follow the links below to access the finding tools.
