Our November Levy Lecture registration is full, but we still have space for our December lecture! Our November lecturer, Leslie Goddard, PhD, digs into the lavish history of the nostalgic shopping stop in a lecture based on her book, Remembering Marshall FIeld’s.
NOVEMBER 14 | 1 PM
Remembering Marshall Field’s
Leslie Goddard, PhD, author of Remembering Marshall Field’s
For more than 150 years, Marshall Field and Co. reigned as Chicago’s leading department store.
This lavishly illustrated talk traces the store’s history from its beginnings as a dry good store in 1852 into a world-class fashion and service trendsetter and international tourist destination.
Photographs, ads, postcards, menus, and memorabilia trace the store’s cherished traditions—from chicken pot pie and the Walnut Room Christmas tree to the State Street store’s legendary window displays.
Leslie Goddard will lead the way as we review many beloved traditions including the 28 Shop, Uncle Mistletoe, the bronze clocks, and, of course, Frango Mints.
