A summary of history-related posts on the Web:

Chicago Tribune

The Trib has an item on the Children’s Museum remaining at Navy Pier rather than moving to Grant Park as the facility is transferred to private management. Here’s the Trib’s photo gallery on Navy Pier.

There’s also a timeline on Underwriters Laboratories and an item on a prep baseball game that celebrated the Negro leagues.

New York Times

The NYT’s Learning Network has an item on SnagLearning, a project of SnagFilms, which offers online documentaries for the schoolroom.

SnagFilms’s documentaries on California  include “Ishi, the Last Yahi,” (1992)  and “Hollywood Bowl: Music Under the Stars” (2001).
