"Collecting for Chicago: Three Chicago institutions depended on James Henry Breasted to guide their acquisitions." In this free lecture Dr. Emily Teeter, Oriental Institute Research Associate, will discuss Breasted’s early 20th century work. Chicago is one of the few cities in the world that is home to three collections of Egyptian antiquities: the Oriental Institute, the Art Institute and Field Museum. Breasted was the guiding force behind these collections. Historic Chicago photos included.
