Abstract

Chicago Tribune Charities files on contributions made or requested. The agencies involved are nearly all charitable or civic; a few are business organizations. The files include all of the in-house memoranda regarding the organization involved, plus most of the direct personal correspondence withn its officials.

Arrangement

Arrangement completed prior to receiving the collection from the McCormick Foundation.

The files are in alphabetical order. Where volume warrants, the material regarding an organizaiton is filed separately in its original folder or folders. Where the volume is small, organizations have been grouped under a letter or a common prefix such as "Chicago" or "National." Some organizations are not represented by folders; materials for them are simply inserted between other folders. When looking for materials related to an organization, try first under its name; if not found, try elsewhere in the appropriate box.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Received from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, Chicago Tribune Company, and Nexstar Media Group on January 10, 2020, accession #SPEC-2020-1.

Separated Materials

Some material was discarded during processing--chiefly brochures and published reports, form letters, and photocopies of checks.
