Blaine, Anita McCormick. Correspondence and papers, 1828-1958.

Correspondence and papers, 1828-1958.

Correspondence and other papers of Blaine, a Chicago philanthropist, consisting of letters, telegrams, and summaries of telephone conversations; reports of committees, boards, and organizations; speeches, essays, and random notes; financial statements and ledgers; clippings; and photographs; concerning her absorbing interests in education, improvement in social and economic conditions, international understanding, and world peace, and her relations with members of the McCormick family and their friends. The daughter of industrialists/philanthropists Cyrus Hall McCormick and Nettie Fowler McCormick, Anita in 1889 married Emmons Blaine, attorney and son of James G. Blaine. Her husband's death in 1892 left her with one son, Emmons, Jr., born in 1890, whom she enrolled in the laboratory school of Cook County Normal School in 1897. For the next two decades her attention focused chiefly on education and child welfare. Following World War I, Mrs. Blaine's interests expanded to include America's entry into the League of Nations, problems of world peace, and the United Nations. In their treatment of all those interests, her papers are extensive and revealing, demonstrating the depth and breadth of her own involvement both personally and financially.
