A Century of Progress was the theme of the 1933-34 Chicago World's Fair. The fair featured numerous exhibitions and cultural displays, including a "midget village" which was advertised as being inhabited by sixty Lilliputians. The exhibition later expanded and was renamed "Midget City." Historically, the term midget was used to describe people with the medical condition dwarfism.
