Transportation Library


On March 23, 1963, President John F. Kennedy officially dedicated O’Hare International Airport. Fifty years later, our beloved O’Hare is still going strong and has become a city and national transportation icon. 

To commemorate this milestone, the Northwestern University Transportation Library using its collections and staff resources, developed this digital exhibit presenting copies of unique airport planning documents, research and archival resources. In addition, we have compiled traveler’s information resources and digital oddities to help celebrate this anniversary.
