Friends of History Faculty / Alumni and Attendees Event:
The Friends of History, the department's wonderful group of supporters, participated in a great event in the fall of 2010 at the Palmer House, a landmark in Chicago since the mid-nineteenth century. Local historian Ken Price discussed the Palmer House's rich history in an illustrated presentation and then led the Friends of History on a tour of the hotel. Attached is a copy of the event invitation "Invitation to "History at the Palmer House.". The following link has pictures taken at The Palmer House/Friends of History
