Richard Giles submitted these links in response to Jerry Fochtman query about U.s. treasury Department exhibits at the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Thanks.
A digitized version of Official catalog of 1893 Columbian Exposition:
The World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893
I only found a paragraph or so about the Treasury exhibits (o p478), but it's an interesting read regardless.
Type "1893 columbian exposition" into Google Image - will locate images. Examples:
US Government Building
The south half of the Government building was devoted to exhibits of Post Office, Treasury Dept, War Dept and Dept of Agriculture
Extensive Online Book listing here:
In this list there is a link to this online book:
Going to Index view under Treasury Exhibit there are references on p.111-113 and 302 (only minor reference)
The links here will lead you to Ch7 for p.111-113
