Starting Thursday, an archive of memorabilia and papers collected by the late Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley will be open to the public.

Some of the items donated to the University of Illinois at Chicago were displayed at the Daley Library during a reception Wednesday night.

The collection includes inscribed books, personal mementos, art and photographs.

This is not an exhibit. Visitors have to work with the archivist to reserve a time, request specific pieces then look at them in a nearby reading room.
