Saving Sabella

A Wheel With a View

Making History


From the Editor:

In this issue we highlight a symbol of summer amusements, the Ferris Wheel. Russel L Lewis’ article explores the Ferris Wheel, created for Chicagos 1893 Worlds Columbian Expedition.

Emile Le Beau Lucchesi’s “Saving Bella” tells the sometimes heart-wrenching story of Sabella Nitti, and Italian immigrant who was charged with murdering her husband.

Timothy Gilfoyles Making History column focuses on 2 of Chicago’s most innovative educators: Paul Adams III, and Walter Massey.
