This #Adolfo knitted wool suit (c. 1972) is perfect for a chilly fall day. 🍁 The Cuban-born designer began as a milliner and established his NYC salon in 1963. He held two unpaid apprenticeships at Chanel and later became known for creating jackets that evoked their style. #FashionFriday #CHMCostumeCouncil

The records of the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights (CCDBR) are a valuable resource for those interested in the history of grassroots activism. Founded in 1960 in opposition to the House Un-American Activities Committee, the CCDBR worked to protect the rights of all Americans. The collection is now available to Research Center patrons.
