This is an original 1937 halftone print of the University of Chicago campus. Shown in the upper right hand corner is Stagg Field, which was recognized as a National Historic Landmark for its achievements during the Manhattan Project. Enrico Fermi had the first nuclear reaction at the site in 1942. Beyond the campus are the Chicago Stockyards. Chicago was known for its Union Stock Yards-- the largest meatpacking center of the world at the time. It was centralized by several different railway systems. The Union Stock Yards remained for over a century, until they were shut down in 1971.
