Juergens Confirmed

Yes, it turns out that the P&C Juergens
who exhbited in the 1915 Artists of Chicago Show
at the Art Institute was indeed Alfred Juergens
(whose artistic legacy was recently discovered in a west suburban attic)

(Note: the Samuel James Kennedy listed above
was the P&C member
responsible for the first and only modernist show at the club)

Juergens was also given a one-man show at the Art Institute
(back in the day when the museum supported local artists)

Here's his bio from the catalog of that exhibit

Here's a page from his sketch book,
currently kept in the archives
of the Ryerson Library.
