    Historical Context

    Marshall Field (1835-1906) was the wealthiest man in Chicago of his time, worth an estimated $100 million when he died. Originally working as a clerk for Potter Palmer, he saved half of his $400/year salary, and in 1865 with his partner Levi Leiter bought Palmer's dry-goods store. Field and Leiter eventually became Marshall Field & Company, which is now one of the most successful and widespread department store chains in the world.

    Field donated $8 million to establish the Field Museum of Natural History. His Prairie Avenue mansion was the first home in Chicago to be wired for electric lighting.

    Marshall Field was acquired by Target, before being sold off to May Department Stores in 2004. May subsequently merged with Federated, and in September of 2005 announced that the remaining Marshall Field stores would be converted to the Macy’s nameplate – sending this proud chain into the history books.
