Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum in Chicago, Illinois was
the first planetarium built in the Western Hemisphere and is the
oldest in existence today. Adler was founded and built in 1930 by
the philanthropist Max Adler, with the assistance of the first
director of the planetarium, Philip Fox. On the occasion of its
dedication on May 10, 1930, Max Adler stated The popular conception
of the universe is too meager; the planets and the stars are too
far removed from general knowledge. In our reflections, we dwell
too little upon the concept that the world and all human endeavor
within it are governed by established order and too infrequently
upon the truth that under the heavens everything is interrelated,
even as each of us to the other.
