Congressman Frank Annunzio of Chicago represented his constituents for 28 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and was always a strong advocate for causes dear to Italian Americans. Annunzio was a consummate Chicagoan: before he was elected to political office in 1965 he was a teacher and a director of labor for the state of Illinois. During his time in the House, he worked tirelessly to have Columbus Day declared a national holiday, among other activities. This digital collection from the University of Illinois at Chicago Library brings together 348 images culled from negatives in the James S. Parker Collection in the Special Collections Department. The images feature Annunzio working with constituents, marching in parades, making speeches and visiting different parts of Chicago. [KMG]
