SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY


Compilers Note:

The following is not a complete bibliography of the resources relied upon to create the Second Edition of the Chronology. Specifically omitted are personal interviews, archival materials and most individual newspaper citations. Because of the convenience of having many citations simultaneously accessible, several separately cataloged, special editions of the local newspapers are included. All sources listed in the Second Edition, with the exception of some of the newspapers cites, and, unless otherwise noted, can be found at either the Skokie Historical Society or Skokie Public Library.
