This is a history of the civic, industrial, commercial, and familial aspects of the development of Chicago and Cook County, Illinois. Contained here is information about companies, churches, schools, hospitals, civic organizations, and many families who were builders of Chicago and the region.

Jacob Bunn :
ISBN: 1556182090. OCLC Number: 57641667

. .

This is a remarkable account of the rise of the Bunn business empire in Illinois — long before the Robber Barons of the Gilded Age, that provides a balanced and intriguing account of business ethics and integrity. Bunn's patronage of Abraham Lincoln establishes an unknown connection between politics and business money in Lincoln's career, but represents a moderate, even compassionate, political model that 30 years later during the career of Mark Hanna seemed quaint by comparison.
