Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev visited Chicago, Illinois in May 1992. While there, he visited the Chicago Board of Trade, where he visited the trading arenas and had a private meeting with then Chairman William F. O'Connor and Vice Chairman Dale Lorenzen. The visit came less than a year after the collapse of the communist Soviet Union and the end of Gorbachev's presidency.
