The Chicago Tribune was quite the innovator when using color inks and printing techniques to bring a range of new and compelling visual materials to its readers. This digital collection from the Michigan State University Libraries brings together over 12,000 images from 5,500 Tribune pages collected from the 1880s to the 1940s. These items were brought to the library by Janet Ginsburg, a friend of the university's College of Communication Arts and Sciences. The About area offers some great insights into how the collection was created and first-time visitors will want to read through this area closely. Moving on, visitors can use the Browse feature to search for particular items of interest. For the casual user, starting with some basic searches, such as "Michigan Avenue," "airplanes," or "trains" is another great option.
