Custodial History

Several cartons of Chicago Tribune Charities files were sent to the Tribune Company Archives in 1985-05 and 1985-06 by Ann Dalesandro and Bob Robinson in Marketing. They appear to have come maily from the files of Arch Ward (president of Chicago Tribune Charities until his death in 1955); George Strickler (president 1967/1970 and executive director 1970/1973); and Luke Carroll (executive director 1973/1976).

A second installment was received in 1986-05 from Nick Goodban, exectuive director since 1983, and a third in 1987-04 from Darlene Collins of the Chicago Tribune Charities office.
