difficulty accessing the collection, which is about 30% complete so
there is a finite chance of finding something. The Library is an
archive closed to the public with no openings for supervised visits
immediately before the show but there might be a slot Sunday after
the show. Visits are by invitation only, therefore we need to be
contacted in advance to explain the conditions and availability of
our time. The Pullman Library is on the way to Rockford about 1 to 1
1/2 hours from Naperville. And of course written inquiries are always
welcome, but lately there has been a delay in answering due to the
