An entertaining lecture by Sara Sullivan, a McHenry County College History Instructor. For over 150 years, Marshall Field and Company was Chicago's well known store, run by the most innovative retailer of the 19th century. Chicago natives could easily identify a Field's shopping bag at a hundred paces, and Chicago's brides weren't really getting married until they registered at Marshall Field and Company. In this presentation Sara Sullivan will review the events, features, and personalities that made Marshall Field's Chicago's store.
