Cathy Jean Maloney and Chicago Botanic Garden. Chicago and Its Botanic Garden: The Chicago Horticultural Society at 125. Evanston, Illinois: Northwestern University Press (2015).

The Chicago Botanic Garden is living proof of how a public-partnership on the Chicago model can produce a world-class asset: entrust an underutilized public resource to a voluntary organization that has the vision, the energy, and the capacity to mobilize communities of support and to oversee a talented professional staff. The Chicago Horticultural Society and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County are the heroes of this remarkable unfolding story.

In his Author! Author! blog series, Museum president Gary T. Johnson highlights works that draw on our collection.
