Illinois Digital Archives

About this collection

Collection provided by: Bensenville Community Public Library

 

The Bensenville Community Public Library has, over the past three decades, collected a substantial amount of material dealing with the transformation of Douglas Field from a World War II aircraft manufacturing facility into O'Hare International Airport. Contained within this collection are letters, press releases, governmental resolutions, photographs and other historic documents. These materials may help the researcher understand O'Hare’s development into a national transportation center, its impact on the ecology of northern Illinois, and the consequences of various expansion plans on the quality of life in Chicago's western suburbs.

 

For more information, visit the O'Hare Digital Collection at the Bensenville Community Public Library site.
