Sub-series 6: Employment Records, 1929-1985  (Bulk, 1930-1960)   3.0 linear ft.

Scope and Contents note

This sub-series contains items that deal with FPDCC employment policies. Most of these items address hiring practices, employee evaluations, and disciplinary decisions. Some are letters from people who sought jobs with the district. A few files have documents about in-service training for employees and general announcements intended for employees. Finally, this sub-series has an almost complete run, from 1945 to 1974, of the "Forest Way," which was a bulletin the district published monthly for its employees.

The provenance of these files is uncertain, but most of them appear to come from the office of the general superintendent or from the FPDCC’s personnel office.

Restrictions on Access

Some items in this collection are restricted until seventy-five (75) years after the date of creation. These items are found in Series I, sub-series 6, "Employment records." Please see the complete finding aid for information on which specific folders the "closed for 75 years" restriction applies to.

Sub-series 9: University of Illinois at Chicago Campus Controversy, 1955-1960   2.5 linear ft.

Scope and Contents note

During the 1950s, the University of Illinois sought to develop a permanent cmapus for its "Chicago Undergraduate Division," then quartered at Navy Pier in Chicago. Selection committees investigated numerous sites for the proposed campus. Among these sites was an area known as Miller Meadow, located within the holdings of the FPDCC. The district was strongly opposed to ceding any land to the University of Illinois for the campus, and it allied itself with citizens and other parties who opposed the possible cession.

This sub-series contains memoranda,correspondence,and other materials concerning this controversy.
