I can't even forward an ADS-L message to ADS-L! Oh well, never mind.
The American Name Society (post this on ANS-L!) has run articles on the name of "Chicago." I copied what the Chicago Historical Society has--there was a long study, but I don't know if it was Vogel (1958).
On the "Windy City" front, I e-mailed my story to the Columbia Journalism Review. I had found the 1886 Chicago Tribune "Windy City" explanation while in the Columbia University Library. The "Windy City" myth involves a New York newspaper editor. Gerald Cohen (Comments on Etymology editor who published a "Windy City" article) graduated from Columbia.
Columbia never wrote back.
