Printed Editions of the Centennial Catalogues (1991-1992)

The printed editions of the four Centennial exhibition catalogues were published by the University of Chicago Library in 1991-1992. The catalogues were based on a series of exhibitions in the Department of Special Collections of the University of Chicago Library, now the Special Collections Research Center. The exhibitions and catalogues were directed and edited by Daniel Meyer. Texts for the exhibitions and catalogues were researched and written by Daniel Meyer, Richard L. Popp, Ronald J. Kim, and Frank Yoder. Preliminary research was conducted by Jean M. O'Brien, Maureen Harp, and Ted Fishman. Kim Coventry directed the design and production of the exhibitions and catalogues. The Centennial series catalogue design was created by William Seabright and Associates, who also designed the individual catalogues The University of Chicago Faculty (1991) and Life on the Quads (1992). Joanne Sommers designed the individual catalogues The University and the City (1992) and The Presidents of the University of Chicago (1992). The Centennial exhibitions and catalogues were developed with support received from the Office of the President of the University of Chicago.

Digital Edition of the Centennial Catalogues (2003)

The digital edition of the four Centennial exhibition catalogues is a collaborative effort of the Digital Library Development Center, the Preservation Department, and the Special Collections Research Center of the University of Chicago Library. The production of the digital edition was coordinated by Elisabeth Long of the DLDC.

Nancy Ross assisted in the creation and validation of the HTML for the web site. Kathy Arthur and Erin Rhodes of Preservation were responsible for the digital conversion and editing of the text. Final copy editing was provided by Anne Taylor. Additional editorial content and review were the responsibility of Alice Schreyer and Daniel Meyer of the Special Collections Research Center.
