Chicago's Stockyard and the World It Made

with Dominic A. Pacyga

Wednesday, January 25, 10:30 a.m.

Hybrid - IWA Office and Zoom

In his talk, Dr. Pacyga will tell us the story of the Chicago’s Union Stock Yard, chronicling the rise and fall of an industrial district that, for better or worse, served as the worldwide face of Chicago for decades and employer to thousands of arriving immigrants.

Dr. Pacyga will be our “behind the scenes” guide as we learn about this fascinating and important Chicago history—he grew up in the shadow of the stockyards, spent summers in their hog house and cattle yards, and maintains a long-standing connection with the working-class neighborhoods around them.

Dr. Pacyga is a Professor of History at Columbia College Chicago. He has authored, or coauthored, five books concerning Chicago's history.
