This online publication reproduces in digital form the text and images from the four University of Chicago Centennial Exhibition Catalogues. These publications were issued in conjunction with a series of exhibitions organized by the Department of Special Collections, now the Special Collections Research Center, to celebrate the 1991-1992 Centennial of the University of Chicago. Drawing on documents, photographs, and other materials from the University of Chicago Archives , these exhibitions viewed the University's history through the perspectives of the faculty, the student experience, relationships between the University and the city of Chicago, and the contributions of the University's first ten chief executives. The catalogues present a portrait of the vision of intellectual excellence and commitment to research on which the University was founded, and the individuals, interactions, and environment that have consistently guided it throughout its history.
