Does the City of Chicago have archives? I'm interested in learning more about the Bureau of Gardens, which was formed in Mayor Bill Thompson's office in the spring of 1917. The Department of Health and Department of Welfare also promoted gardening around that time Does each office or department keep (or toss...) its own files, or is there some central repository?
