Shedd Aquarium postcard, in limbo 55 years, reaches recipient

Scott McMurry got his first glimpse of the John G. Shedd Aquarium last week on the back of a postcard he should have received from his mother more than 50 years ago.

Now, the 71-year-old retired historian will see all the aquarium has to offer Thursday, thanks to an expenses-paid trip to Chicago.
