My great-grandfather was a lighthouse keeper in Chicago in the early 1890s. I have a journal where he jotted some notes on manning the Fair's booth. He mentions the Fresnel lens being put into the Chicago light (he also worked on some interior construction for the lighthouse). What historical organization should this document go to? (It's not a lot of detail, but is probably significant to Chicago Light historians.)
