Edward H. Bennett collection
This record forms part of the Chicago’s Art-Related Archival Materials: A Terra Foundation Resource project funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art. For this project, the Archives surveyed archival repositories throughout the Chicago region to identify art-related materials contained in their holdings. While the Archives of American Art does not own any of the materials described herein, information about those materials and links to the original repositories have been included when available.
24 linear feet (78 boxes) , 3 portfolios, 2 oversize portfolios, flatfile materials, and 34 microfilm reels consisting of correspondence, project files, published and unpublished speeches and articles, photographs, architectural drawings, and reports documenting virtually all phases of the professional career of architect Edward H. Bennett. Also included is a small amount of personal memorabilia. Some entries in Bennett’s diaries record his work with sculptor Lorado Taft and painter Jules Guerin, with matters relating to public sculpture work in Chicago, and with projects concerning the Municipal Art League and Municipal Art Commission.
