Chicago city directories

Chicago’s Newberry Library has a blog post that discusses the gaps and the ending of Chicago directories that I referenced in my own blog post yesterday about the 1940 census.

“Where are the rest of the city directories?” is a question heard frequently at the reference desk. Although the Newberry has a complete collection of Chicago City Directories, there are no directories in the microfilm drawer (or online) for 1918-1922 or from 1924-1928.
