Joliet Women's Study Club History is Now on Display

Published: December 7, 2020.

The Adelmann Regional History Collection in the Lewis University Library recently acquired a new collection of historical documents from the Joliet Women's Study Club. The collection highlights the history of the club itself, and the collection will continue to receive items as the Joliet Women's Study Club seeks to find a connection with the Chicago World's Fair of 1893.

Jacob Barrett, History Center student intern, helped integrate the new materials into the collection and the library's online system. He organized and archived the collection. Barrett also created a promotional display in the library to let patrons know of the new, historic collection within the library's walls.
