Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists of films related to Illinois history, with particular emphasis on Abraham Lincoln, Carl Sandburg, and Chicago.

The collection contains films primarily related to Illinois and Abraham Lincoln. In addition to Lincoln, Carl Sandburg, and Chicago, the films explore topics such as French exploration in Illinois Territory, immigration, labor history, and Midwestern literature. Short descriptions of each film can be found in the University of Illinois Film Center General Catalog, which is stored with the collection.

The Illinois Historical Survey, predecessor to the Illinois History and Lincoln Collections, acquired the films in 1993 as a result of the closing of the University of Illinois Film Center.
