Remembering Marshall Field and Company
Thursday, December 19, 2013 | Time: 6:30
For more than 150 years, Marshall Field and Company reigned as Chicago’s leading department store. This lavishly illustrated PowerPoint talk by author and historian Leslie Goddard traces the store’s history from its beginnings as a dry goods store in 1852 into a world-class fashion and service trendsetter.
Ms. Goddard will also present photographs, ads, postcards, and memorabilia of the store’s cherished traditions – the Walnut Room Christmas tree, the State Street’s store legendary window displays, and, of course, Frango Mints. Ms. Goddard’s book, Remembering Marshall Field’s, will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.
