Christopher Lynch, author of Chicago's Midway Airport

Meet Christopher Lynch the author of Chicago Midway's Airport: the first seventy-five years. Midway was Chicago's first official airport, and for decades it was the busiest airport in the nation, and then the world. Its story is an American story, encompassing heroes and villains, generosity and greed, boom and bust, progress and decline, and in the final chapter, rebirth. Join Christopher Lynch as he combines oral histories, narrative, and historic and contemporary photos to celebrate the rich and exciting 75-year history of this colorful airport and evolution of aviation right along with it. Come fly with us to another era of air travel on Thursday, June 15, 2006 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room, lower level. Everyone is welcome!
