In relation to the above, there is one section:
The Crerar Library opened in the Marshall Field building, moving in 1921 to its own building at the northwest corner of Randolph Street and Michigan Avenue. The Board of Directors of the library established a building fund with the 1889 endowment and set out to gain approval for a Grant Park location. In 1902, the Chicago City Council approved the plan, but public criticism force the design to be built on the Northwest corner of Michigan Avenue. World War I postponed groundbreaking of the 16-story Holabird & Roche design until 1919.
that I don't believe to be copyvio. However, it didn't work on its own, so it was removed as part of the section. There's certainly no problems with putting it back in some form. - Bilby (talk) 22:15, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
I suggest that you re-read the article. I have carefully examined each sentence. Racepacket (talk) 14:20, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
