1893/1933: Chicago?s Columbian Exposition & Century of Progress
1893/1933: Chicago?s Columbian Exposition & Century of Progress.
By Arthur E. Weis.
The first came at the height of the ?Gilded Age?, the second during the depth of depression. Chicago?s great fairs left their impacts on the world and the town that hosted them. Arising on the south shore of Lake Michigan, the earlier fair was inspiration to the ?City Beautiful? movement, an architectural fashion celebrating the past, and culminating in the Mall in Washington, D.C.
Eight miles up the shore and forty years later, the vision turned squarely toward the future. The second fair aspired to streamlined designs executed in novel materials, pointing hopefully towards prosperity. Faith in progress?in a better material life to come?was the fair?s overarching message, a message that permeated public discourse and supper-table conversation in Chicago for another forty years. On the other hand, Little Egypt and Sally Rand made their marks too.
Arthur E. Weis is professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology studying evolutionary response to climate change at U of T?s Koffler Scientific Reserve.
