J^tefate. 



'ISI compiling this work it has not been 'the a 
to ape oth^r Blu-e Books which may be in 
existence, but to give a comprehensive view 
of the achievements of the colored people in Chi- 
cago. Therefore more stress has been given to the 
business side rather than social. 

We have tried to make it a handy book of refer- 
ence. The Church, Club, and Society Directory 
may not be complete in every -case but we think ft 
is for the most part correct, except where there 
Ihave been recent changes. 

The Classified Business Directory is not as com- 
plete as we should have liked, but we ask our 
patrons to send in their names and any changes or 
corrections which they may desire and vve will get 
them in the next edition. 

The regular editions will be issued once a year. 

The next one will be considerably enlarged and 
will not be confined to business alone. 

Wc wish to express many thanks to the many 
who have rendered us service in bringing forth this 
first edition. 

Hoping that the public will be pleased with the 

work. 

. We remain sincerely yours, 

D. A. Bethea, Compiler.

HOWBBD'S PSIG STOUE 

A RACC ENTERPRISE THAT IS S CREDIT TO CHICAGO 

3105 STATE ST. CHICAGO, ILL. 



Beginning about three years ago as solicitor, Mr. C. 
Eugene Howard has worked earnestly with the object of 
giving to Chicago an up to date music store, owned by 
the race. So well has he succeeded that his store is one 
of the first places visited by strangers in the city and is 
referred to with great pride by members of our race in 
Chicago. 

A glance at this store from the outside would sug- 
gest an establishment that has been open for ten years in- 
stead of one year and when } ou step inside ycu are nore 
than pleased. Surrounded by pianos, graphopones, sheet 
music of all kinds, and all that makes a music store, 
you will always find Mr. Howard with his assistant 
busily engaged either preparing the mail orders or wait- 
ing on the many customers. So well has this store be- 
come known that scarcely a day passcs-that they do not 
receive mail orders from all over the country and Canada. 
The music writers of our race recognize this place as one 
place where their songs are displayed as well as the other 
fellow's. Mr. Howard intends to still improve his store 
until as he says, "It will be second to none."
