For more than 50 years, the Daley family has been shaping Chicago.Here's are some individual stories on the future Daleys:
Now, the next generation of Daleys is making its mark on the city.
They're working in business and law, education and medicine.
None holds elected office -- yet. But many are still in the middle of some of the biggest issues affecting the city:
• The replacement of public housing projects. The oldest grandchild of the late Mayor Richard J. Daley -- Robert Vanecko -- is helping build affordable housing, financed with city pension funds. He's also eyeing redevelopment of the neighborhood around the proposed Olympic stadium.
• A private takeover of Midway Airport. Another grandson, William Daley Jr., works for a company that wants to run the airport.
• The proposed state purchase of Wrigley Field. Grandson Peter Q. Thompson is a member of the state board that will make the decision.
• The Chicago Children's Museum's proposed move to Grant Park. Grandson Patrick Daley Thompson works for the museum's law firm.
• The Lollapalooza festival in Grant Park, where rock concerts were long forbidden. Grandson Mark Vanecko is Lollapalooza's lobbyist.
