Here are a few answers. 1) This book might be available at your local library: Chicago portraits : biographies of 250 famous Chicagoans Sawyers, June Skinner, 1957- Publisher: Loyola University Press, Pub date: c1991. Pages: xv, 322 p. : ISBN: 0829407006 2) This site has a good list of more recent famous Chicagoans: http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/chicago/links/famous.html The links on that site try to point directly to the appropriate person on http://www.biography.com, but really end up on the search page. You can go from there though, and the few I tried include a decent picture. 3) www.earlychicago.com and http://www.encyclopedia.chicagohistory.org also have lots of pictures. Not as neat as you may want, but better than nothing!
