TitleField Museum
DescriptionCaption: "The Art Building of the famous World's Fair of 1893, is the only one of the white structures preserved in Jackson Park. It had its beginnings as a permanent institution from the contributions of rare articles by exhibitors at the Exposition. It was first intended to be called "The Columbian Museum, " but on an endowment of one million dollars from Marshall Field, its name was changed to "The Field Columbian Museum." It has a course of popular lectures, an established series of publications and several scientific expeditions have been sent out to augment the collections of the museum. A new site has been obtained on the lake front and Mr. Field has donated ten million dollars for the purpose of erecting the finest museum structure in the world."
