The Daily Calumet

The Daily Calumet was a daily newspaper published in Chicago in 1881-1987. It was the oldest local Chicago newspaper. Why is it important to us? Because it served the communities of South Chicago, South Shore, Irondale/Slag Valley, South Deering, the East Side and Hegewisch, as well as the nearby suburbs of Calumet City and Burnham. This area, due to the proximity of huge meat factories and iron foundries, was the place where immigrants from Europe, including Poland, settled. In turn, the areas near Augustów and Suwalki were a source of a huge number of emigrants, which was favored by the proximity of the Prussian border, poverty and overpopulation prevailing in the village. For this reason, there is probably not a single number of The Daily Calumetin which there would be no word about our emigrants or their descendants.
