The Groninger Hoek

Dr. Robert P. Swierenga has a nice paper on Chicago's West Side Dutch Community known as The Groninger Hoek

Check the link with the audio of his lecture on "Garbios: Chicago's Dutch Scavangers". Grow up Dutch in Chicago and you know the Dutch ran the private waste-hauling business and fought the mob to keep control of it.
