The Italians in Chicago Project was a two-year program based at the University of Illinois at Chicago in which volunteers interviewed 114 Italian-Americans of various generations in the Chicago area. The goal of the project was to document the Italian-American experience in Chicago. This collection contains transcriptions of each interview and related information. The material is filed in alphabetical order by the name of the interviewee.
Professor Dominic Candeloro, executive director of the project, donated this collection to the Library in 1989.
