FACTS & FIGURES

A Century of Progress International Exposition was the name of a World's Fair held in Chicago, IL from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Conforms". 

One of the highlights of the 1933 World's Fair was the arrival of the German airship Graf Zeppelin on October 26, 1933. At the the end of the airship's last flight to South America, in October 1933, instead of returning directly to Germany from Brazil, the ship detoured through the United States, for stops in Miami, Akron, and Chicago. After circling Lake Michigan near the exposition for two hours, Commander Hugo Eckener landed the 776-foot airship at the nearby Curtiss - Wright Airport in Glenview. It remained on the ground for twenty-five minutes, then it departed for Akron, Ohio...
