Learn about Phi Sigma, a public-speaking group established in Chicago in 1878, the oldest, continuously running organization of its kind in Illinois.  View covers from its publication the “Voice” created and designed by its members, whose pages contain the text of talks presented on such diverse topics as art history, socialism, philosophy, journalism, idealism, and evolution.

This collection, housed in College Archives & Digital Collections at Columbia College Chicago, honors the College’s early curricula in oratory arts and speaks to Columbia’s mission and curricula today.

The exhibit is curated by Emily Sperl, an undergraduate student in Photography at Columbia College Chicago.
