Abstract
Thomas E. Wilson was a prominent Chicago businessman. He started a meat-packing business at the start of the 20th century, but the business eventually evolved into the manufacture of sports goods (now Wilson Sporting Goods, a world-famous brand), pharmaceuticals, and industrial chemicals. Black and white outtakes feature images of Wilson's farm, factories, and offices. Includes images of downtown Chicago, including exterior shots of the Prudential Building.
