Pritzker Military
Museum & Library

Colonel Pritzker, Founder of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the citizen soldier in America. Today, with assistance from the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library has grown to become a top class, non-partisan, research and archival organization that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the importance of the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces.


Pritzker Military Foundation

The Pritzker Military Foundation was created as a branded portal through which to not only carry out Colonel Pritzker’s philanthropic activities in the military genre, but also to complement, promote, and amplify the mission, vision, and partnerships of the Pritzker Military Museum & Library.
