Tribune and Sun-Times editorials weigh-in on national park status for Pullman


There are finally some signs of life there, and now one really promising opportunity. It — he — arrived in Chicago last week in full park ranger uniform explaining how the Pullman campus might fit into the National Park System. His name? Jon Jarvis, director of the National Park Service. Jarvis met with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and visited Pullman to listen to residents and take a look around. Jarvis’ tour de Pullman was important because he will greatly influence whether President Barack Obama uses his executive authority under the Antiquities Act of 1906 to declare Pullman part of the National Park System…Please click here to read the Tribune editorial.

Pullman Park needs Congress’ support It looks to be just a matter of time now before Chicago’s historic Pullman neighborhood is declared a national park, but it sure would be better if Congress made the call, signaling bipartisan support, rather than leave it to President Obama.

Pullman tells essential stories in the histories of African-Americans, labor unions and utopian communities…Please click here to read the Sun-Times editorial.
