"Bughouse Square (bughouse is slang for mental

south of the Newberry, this park was Chicago’s most boisterous and
radical free-speech space from the 1910s through the 1960s. Bohemians,
socialists, atheists, and religionists of all persuasions mounted
soapboxes, spoke to responsive, vocal crowds, and competed informally
for attention and donations."
