The Illinois History and Lincoln Collections presents "Home: Illinois Immigration Stories," an exhibit featuring archival documents from three families who immigrated to the United States and chose to make Illinois their home. Two of the families, the Gutmanns and the Stevens, emigrated from Europe in the mid-1800s, eventually settling in Champaign County. The third family, the Alayus, emigrated from the Philippines in the early 1900s and settled in Chicago. Photographs, letters, and notebooks from the three families show how each sought the opportunity to create a new home in Illinois.
Exhibit hours: The exhibit will be open from 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday-Friday during the fall and spring semester. Hours will be reduced during Thanksgiving week and winter break. Please see the library website at http://www.library.illinois.edu/ihx for details.
