ORGANIZATION

 Chicago Map Society

PUBLICATION Members of the Chicago Map Society receive Mapline, the subscription newsletter of the Hermon Dunlap Smith Center for the History of Cartography at the Newberry Library.
DESCRIPTION Founded in 1976, the Chicago Map Society is the oldest map society in North America. Meetings are held during the academic year at the Newberry Library. Meetings begin with an informal social half-hour, followed by a 45-minute presentation and a brief discussion. The society occasionally arranges excursions to map libraries and often dedicates one meeting a year as a time for members to share their own maps with the group.
