Previous owner Henschen is undoubtedly Henry S. Henschen, 1873-1943, editor of a history of the State Bank of Chicago, President of the Chicago Bank of Commerce, Treasurer of the Chicago Academy of Sciences, Governing Member of the Art Institute of Chicago (1927-1943) and Investment Banker founder of Henry S. Henschen 1920-1927 (Who's who in Chicago, 1936). His father, William Henschen, immigrated from Sweden in 1870 and was active in the Methodist and Swedish communties in Chicago, even in publishing a Sunday school paper. After a few years in Sweden 1885-89, the family returned to Chicago; the younger Henschen attended law school and then went into banking. It must have been at this point that he directed a Sunday School class (perhaps it was the Grace ME Church at La Salle and Locust, though this is only speculation) and received this appropriate gift for the immigrant family: Bryce's classic guide to the American governing system. See Youken, Organized Sunday School Work in America 1911-1914 for mention of Henry S. Henschen.
