We will examine Chicago by studying its recent mayors, beginning with Richard J. Daley, who served as mayor from 1955 to 1976, and ending with Rahm Emanuel, the city’s current leader. The first Mayor Daley, Jane Byrne, Harold Washington, Richard M. Daley, and Rahm Emanuel will be covered.
Keith Koeneman is the author of the book First Son: The Biography of Richard M. Daley, which was published by the University of Chicago Press earlier this year.
