Lunchtime@the Library --- The Lathrop Lions & the Family Behind Them

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - 11:30am to 1:00pm
Bring your lunch! We provide the guest speaker, coffee and dessert.
Chicago’s iconic pair of lions, that have stood guard in front of the Art Institute since 1894, were donated by Florence Lathrop as a tribute to her husband Henry Field (Marshall’s brother). Florence’s family was one of Chicago’s most prominent and influential families yet they kept a low profile; in fact the lions are never called the “Lathrop Lions”. Come learn about the family that you never heard of that made such an impact on Chicago.
