Abstract:

Correspondence, writings, scrapbooks and miscellany relating to Chicago financier and philanthropist Charles L. Hutchinson, in particular regarding his interest in civic and cultural matters, the arts and the founding and development of the Art Institute.

The letters are incoming, almost all of them to Hutchinson with a few to his wife and eight others. Among the important correspondents, among others, are Francis H. Bacon, James Henry Breasted, Daniel H. Burnham, Charles Norman Fay, Frank W. Gunsaulus, John W. Root, and artists William Holman Hunt and Henry Ward Ranger. There are voluminous scrapbooks which contain a record of art purchases made by the Hutchinsons on extensive travels, both for their personal collection and for the developing Art Institute of Chicago. Other scrapbooks contain personal matter: clippings, pictures, invitations, etc. Also, a typewritten diary kept intermittently by Hutchinson, a lengthy notebook which records his work with St. Paul's Universalist Church, copies of several his speeches, mementos and travel miscellany, items of memorabilia and a few undated photographs.
