The 1980s Suburban Chicago Population Boom: A Very Selective Bibliography with Line Graphs

Subtitle:  Goodbye photocopied newspaper articles

Du Page boom commutes to Kane.  (Chicago Tribune, 5/7/1986)

The Boom Accelerates

Will County may be next boom area.  (Chicago Tribune, 11/23/1986)

May be?  Make that Will be!
Booming Du Page flexes growth muscles.  (Chicago Tribune, 9/30/1987)

Kane learns lessons of growth (Chicago Tribune, 10/22/1987).  Print headline.

Growing pains.   Du Page County breaks out of Cook County's shadow to confront its own urban sprawl.   (Chicago Tribune Magazine, 10/25/1987)

 The Boom Cools, Finally (Running out of Room?)

Poor knock in vain on Du Page's door.  (9/12/1988)  Not everyone is invited to the Boom.

Hanging tough.   The last thing Henry County wants is to be the next congested and overdeveloped suburb of Chicago.  (Chicago Tribune Magazine, 10/30/1988).    Fat chance!

The Boom Continues

I can't imagine the Tribune not covering the growth in Lake County.  Maybe the articles were published on days when I didn't buy the paper.
