Fair Exhibitors

I am looking to find a listing of all the exhibitors at the 1893 Columbian World's Fair. When the different countries sent representatives over to be a part of the fair, would they have taken specific boats/trains where there might be a record of a particular person listed? I need ideas on how to search. I am looking for a particular family member who came over from Europe that we believe was an exhibitor at the fair. Thank you for any help.

Have you contacted the Chicago History Museum?

There is also the Chicago Historical Society, though you may need to narrow your focus first--I just sent you a message with suggestions...
