In industry and finance, politics and philanthropy, inspiring great works of art and creating them, local residents have made their marks on the world. Sometimes this happens far away – in towering structures halfway across the globe, or even on a journey to the Moon. It happens in Chicago, as these men and women built a small Midwestern hub into a global center of manufacturing, commerce and culture. And it happens even closer to home, with architectural innovations like the planned downtown Market Square business district emulated across the country.

At home and abroad, by example and through advocacy, Lake Forest and Lake Bluff continue to change the world.
