Object history The sheaf of wheat stands for fertility of the Illinois prairies, the ship, Lake Michigan, and the Indians, the original settlers of the Chicago region. “Urbs in Horto” – “ Garden City – is the motto by which the early city fathers hoped Chicago would be. Only slumbering infant is a mystery, although it is accepted to mean peace and purity.
