Excerpt from Chicago City Manual, 1911 The major part of the work done by the bureau is for the Aldermen. Only a few, if any, of the very active members of the Council have failed to give us opportunities of serving them. In the spring of every year, at the annual renewing of the Council, letters have been addressed to the Aldermen, that have reminded some and informed others of the existence of this Bureau and Library and of our readiness to supply them with any and all data that they might require as helps in their aldermanic labors. The majority have not neglected to avail of such helps. And we have throughout the year had satisfaction and pleasure in serving in like manner, teachers, students, the newspapers and members of the various clubs in which civics are pursued. At the same time we have conducted an extended correspondence through the mails/ All the world writes to the Mayor for all sorts of facts of administration, and generally of the city, and hundreds of the great number of letters received by him, and which neither he nor his secretary have time to answer, are referred to the head of this Bureau for attention. Besides there is an unending volume of correspondence carried on here direct with the Mayors and other officials, and with educationists and prominent citizens of other cities in this country and in Europe; and even in China, Japan and Australia; indeed, in most parts of the earth where civilization prevails. We exchange public documents with them all, or nearly all of them. During the last year we have sent off over numbers and have received giving us net perma nent accessions of volumes or preservable pieces.
