Lecture: How the World Arrived on Lake Michigan’s Shores

Presented by Elmhurst History Museum at Elmhurst History Museum, Elmhurst IL

Lecture: How the World Arrived on Lake Michigan’s Shores

Join author Sam Mitrani as he discusses the history of immigration to the Chicagoland area and the ways immigrants have shaped the region.

At least since the first Algonquian-speaking tribes arrived here, the Chicago area has attracted people whose lives were disrupted by war, famine, revolution, and economic crisis all over the world. Join author and College of DuPage Professor of History Sam Mitrani to learn why so many came here and how these successive waves of immigrants have shaped and been shaped by this region we call home.
