Chicago Metro History Fair and National History Day

Each year students across the country participate in the National History Day events. Here at the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, librarians are available to help students create their projects based on the annual theme, this year's being "Breaking Barriers in History."

To compete in the Chicago Metro History Fair,  students are asked to relate the annual topic to Chicago or Illinois history. We've gathered several topics related to the 2019-2020 theme to help students do research with materials in the Museum & Library collection:

Camp Douglas

Chicago and Aviation

Chicago Race Riots of 1919

Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy

Hello Girls

Pullman Strike

Signal Corps in World War I

Tuskegee Airmen

Women and the military
