Pritzker Military Museum and Library is a Special library. This library is affiliated with Pritzker Military Library (view map)
|Other Info:||The Pritzker Military Library was founded in 2003 by COL James N. Pritzker IL ARNG (ret.) as a non-profit (501c3) research library, whose mission is to acquire and maintain an accessible collection of materials and develop appropriate programs focusing on the Citizen Soldier in the preservation of democracy.
The Library has a growing research collection of over 69,000 items of which 43,000 are books on military history, military fiction, and public affairs. The collection also consists of 6,000 historic photographs, 3,000 prints and posters --- many of which are original WWI and WWII recruiting posters, and artifacts like our collection of shoulder sleeve insignia. The oldest item in the collection is Strada’s The History of the Low Countrey Warres (London: 1650). The newest items were received from some of the leading publishers of military history in the past 2 weeks (i.e., Stackpole, University of Nebraska Press, Random House).
The Library also has an extensive programming schedule that features well-known and respected authors, historians, scholars, and veterans discussing the military, its history, and its importance to a democratic society. Past guests have included Joe Galloway, General Anthony Zinni USMC (ret.), James McPherson, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Carlo D’Este, and Mark Bowden.
