Throughout the years, there have been more contributions by individuals than can possibly be named in one exhibit. Of significance are the many faculty members, alumni, staff members and other DePaul affiliated groups that continue to offer generous gifts in support of the academic mission of the university. These gifts have established subject strengths in such areas as historic maps, Chicago history and literature and the Islamic world.
