Series Description Series I: Donated Material. Sub Series I: Donations, Information, and Transcripts. The Italian-American Collection was compiled as part of the "Italians in Chicago" project by the Department of History at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle. The project was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and largely conducted during 1979 and 1980. Donations included photographs, sound recordings, video recordings, books, booklets and pamphlets, citizenship papers, church documents, as well as various other family memorabilia. Some donations show life in Italy, many more deal with the immigration process, and others show dominant themes in Italian American lives here in the United States. This sub-series contains the donations and interview transcripts of various Italian Americans who participated in the Italian American research project. Most of the interviews and donations took place in 1979 and 1980 in the city of Chicago. This sub-series and spans from the years of 1880 through 1980.
