About this artwork

Educated at Yale University, Edwin Hill Clark began practicing architecture in Chicago in 1906 in partnership with William Otis. Although a small firm, it produced a broad variety of projects: large estates in Chicago’s northern suburbs, libraries and city halls, animal habitats for the Lincoln Park Zoo, and several buildings for the 1933–1934 Century of Progress exposition in Chicago. The collection includes diaries, project photographs, and scrapbooks documenting Clark’s architectural and military careers.
