545 |aChicago photographer.|bF. Peter Weil was born in Germany in 1913 and came to the United States in 1938. Having started in photography as a hobby, he studied under Aaron Siskind and Art Sinsabaugh at the Institute of Design in Chicago on a part-time basis, 1952-1954. After working for photographers in Chicago and free-lancing for the Hyde Park Herald, Weil was hired by the Newberry Library in 1969 as the supervisor of the Photoduplication Department, and also served as staff photographer. In addition, Weil had an extensive collection of photographs from earlier community events, the most important of these being the 1961 Chicago Conference that brought hundreds of American Indians to the University of Chicago. This led to the founding of the National Indian Youth Congress. Weil served on the Board of the Circle Pines Center, a summer camp cooperative in Michigan. A long-time resident of Hyde Park in Chicago, Weil died in 1997 at age eighty-three. Tosia Mundstock came to the United States in 1929 from Hamburg, Germany.|bMarried to an artist named David Martin, Mundstock apparently had studied with Mary Wigman and Martha Graham. She was a teacher of community dance groups, two of which were in the Detroit area and in California. Little else is known about her except she was living and teaching in Santa Barbara, California in the 1990s.
