László Kondor served as Mayor Richard J. Daley’s official photographer from 1972 to 1976.
In 2013, Kondor donated about 600 photographs, 600 slides, and 3,000 negatives from those years to the University Library. A sample of the images has already been digitized. You can see them here at the Remembering Richard J. Daley online exhibit.
The other photographs are available in the Special Collections and University Archives reading room at the Richard J. Daley Library in Chicago. You can read the online archival finding aid (inventory listing) for the László Kondor Photograph Collection and Ask a Librarian to make an appointment to see them in person.
Also in 2013, Kondor generously gave his time to do an oral history interview. He discussed his career in photography, his experiences growing up in Hungary and leaving in the wake of the 1956 uprising and what it was like working with Mayor Daley. Read a transcript of Kondor’s interview [PDF]. Audio excerpts from that interview are found in the online exhibit as well.
