About this Article

The Daily Herald dates to 1872, emerging to some degree from the embers of the Great Chicago Fire a year earlier. The rebuilding from that calamity sent large numbers of Chicago residents looking for safer locations outside the city limits, and when they arrived here, they needed a source of information about their own communities, their own friends and neighbors.
