About this artwork

Norman Schlossman (1901–1990), along with partners Jerrold Loebl, John DeMuth, Richard Bennett and Edward D. Dart, designed and built a variety of residential, commercial, governmental, medical, religious and educational buildings in predominantly midwestern locales for nearly three-quarters of a century. Perhaps most significant are their projects in the sectors of public housing (Dearborn Homes, Wentworth Gardens), urban renewal (Michael Reese Hospital Complex, Prairie Shores Apartments), shopping centers (Old Orchard, Oak Brook) and suburban planned communities (Park Forest, IL). This collection consists of newspaper and magazine articles, correspondence and printed matter documenting select built work of the firms Loebl and Schlossman (1925, about 1933–1946), Loebl, Schlossman and DeMuth (1926–about 1933), Loebl, Schlossman and Bennett (1947–1965) and Loebl, Schlossman, Bennett and Dart (1965–1975).
