Jerry Fochtman submitted these requests related to his research into the 1893 Columbian Exposition.
I'm doing some research on the 1893 Columbian Exposition. The Treasury Dept, via the mint and the Bureau of Engraving/Printing had exhibits on display. I seem to vaguely recall seeing a picture what showed the exhibit but have not had any success in re-discovering where I'd seen it or locating any such pictures on-line (yet!). I wonder if anyone might recall seeing something like this in a book or another resource and can let me know where I might be able to obtain a digital copy? I'm also looking for a possible list of what might have been in the exhibit.
Also, there appears to be an album in the Library of Congress placed there by the Treasury Department in 1910 that contains 30+ pictures of the exhibits in the Government Building at the exposition. However, it's not digitized so one has to go to the LOC pictures room and request/view it. I'm wondering if it might be in this album, but I've got no way to get there. Would anyone in the Washington area be interested in checking this out?
Can anyone help with either request? Perhaps So-Called Dollar collectors are familiar with the sought image. Here is the Treasury Department medal from the Columbian Exposition.
