Virtual/Online

William Hazelgrove will explore Chicago during the darkest days of the Great Depression and share the story of Chicago’s fight against organized crime in advance of the The 1933 World’s Fair.

Author William Hazelgrove discusses the exciting and sprawling history behind the 1933 World's Fair, the last of the golden age. Learn about the six millionaire businessmen, dubbed the Secret Six, who beat Al Capone at his own game, ending the gangster era as Prohibition was repealed; Sally Rand, with her own rags-to-riches story, as well as the story of Rufus and Charles Dawes, who gave the fair a theme and found financing during the worst economic times the country had ever experienced.

A Zoom link will be sent out to registrants on the day of the program.
