Peter Alter, Archivist

Peter finished his many years of studying history in college at the University of Arizona in 2000. For several years he worked on exhibits at the Chicago History Museum, and now works with the Museum's archives.  When asked about his favorite aspect of working at the Museum,  he replied, "I really like meeting and working with the living actors of history, from civil rights workers to lowriders." He's also a big sports fan; while his allegiance lies with the Chicago Cubs, he really likes reading about Chicago White Sox history.
