EVANSTON HISTORY CENTER AT THE CHARLES GATES DAWES HOUSE:
Dawes was a proficient economist. Author of a book on the U.S. banking system, the youngest comptroller of currency, and the first director of the federal budget, he wrote the revised post-war reparation plan that earned him a Nobel Peace Prize in 1925.
THE DRIEHAUS MUSEUM:
As president of First National Bank, Samuel Mayo Nickerson appreciated the security provided by a safe. The marble-covered safe on the first floor blends into the surrounding walls, complementing the rich interiors and bewildering potential troublemakers. Visitors can ask to see this safe's interior.
ROGER BROWN STUDY COLLECTION:
A LIFE WELL SPENT
What to do with that pocket full of change at the end of the day? Dump it on the nightstand, of course. Roger Brown’s pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters spill out of a glass ashtray, right next to an oddly empty piggy bank. Guests are drawn to the dusty copper and silver coins, which serve as ordinary––but somehow priceless—reminders of daily life well spent.
