Scope and Content of the Collection

From the Collection:

Programs and other materials regarding performances and events held at the Auditorium Theater from 1888-1938. The item from 1888 is a Republican National Convention typed list of candidates; the Convention was held in the Auditorium before the building was even completed. The bulk of the programs are for the Apollo Musical Club, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Chicago Opera Association (later called the Chicago Civic Opera Company). There are also programs and souvenir books from smaller musical and theatrical companies, both within Chicago and touring from elsewhere. There are some programs from both World's Fairs (1893 Columbian Exposition; 1933 Century of Progress), as well as a few announcements and programs for political and social events (conventions, labor rallies, etc.)
