The Burnham Plan Centennial - Bold Plans, Big Dreams

Program Partners


The Union League Club of Chicago recently concluded a yearlong celebration of its 125th anniversary. Established in 1879 to uphold the sacred obligations of citizenship, to promote honesty and efficiency in government, and to support cultural institutions and the beautification of the city, the Club has been a contributing partner in the growth and development of Chicago. Through the efforts of its membership, the Club is a catalyst for action in the political, economic and social arenas—focusing its leadership and resources on important social issues.

The Union League Club, where Daniel Burnham was a member, is displaying in its Jackson Blvd. windows during the Centennial Year a selection of Burnham-related materials from its Archives, including large scale reproductions of key sections of Burnham's Plan of Chicago.
