American Pharaoh: Mayor Richard J. Daley - His Battle for Chicago and the Nation
By Adam Cohen and Elizabeth J. Taylor '79
Little, Brown. 2000.
From his election in 1955 until his death in 1976, Mayor Richard J. Daley ruled Chicago with an iron fist. The last of the big-city bosses, Daley was an outsized national figure whose powerbrokering got Kennedy elected in 1960. He was also a man of profound prejudices who had a deep authoritarian streak, as the nation witnessed when his police savagely cracked down on peaceful protestors at the 1968 Democratic national convention. While he transformed Chicago into a metropolis of skyscrapers, freeways and a thriving downtown, he also constructed the nation's worst ghettos and made Chicago the most segregated city in America. This is the only available biography of one of the seminal figures in twentieth-century American history.
Elizabeth Taylor, book review editor and Sunday magazine editor at the Chicago Tribune, is a former correspondent with Time.

Maryfield Academy
By Carla J. Tomaso '72
Alice Street Editions, Haworth Press. 2003.
