(Laura) Jane Addams (September 6, 1860-May 21, 1935) won worldwide recognition in the first third of the twentieth century as a pioneer social worker in America, as a feminist, and as an internationalist.
She was born in Cedarville, Illinois, the eighth of nine children. Her father was a prosperous miller and local political leader who served for sixteen years as a state senator and fought as an officer in the Civil War; he was a friend of Abraham Lincoln
Miss Addams and Miss Starr made speeches about the needs of the neighborhood, raised money, convinced young women of well-to-do families to help, took care of children, nursed the sick, listened to outpourings from troubled people. By its second year of existence, Hull-House was host to two thousand people every week. There were kindergarten classes in the morning, club meetings for older children in the afternoon, and for adults in the evening more clubs or courses in what became virtually a night school. The first facility added to Hull-House was an art gallery, the second a public kitchen; then came a coffee house, a gymnasium, a swimming pool, a cooperative boarding club for girls, a book bindery, an art studio, a music school, a drama group, a circulating library, an employment bureau, a labor museum.

Name: Jane Addams Date of Birth: 1860 Place of Birth: Cedarville, Illinois Date of Death: 1935 Place of Death: Chicago, Illinois Jane Addams is remembered primarily as a founder of the Settlement House Movement. She and her friend Ellen Starr founded Hull House in the slums of Chicago in 1889. She is also remembered as the first American Woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Jane is portrayed as the selfless giver of ministrations to the poor, but few realize that she was a mover and shaker in the areas of labor reform (laws that governed working conditions for children and women), and was a founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Jane grew up in the small community of Cedarville, Illinois. She was the daughter of a very well-to-do gentleman; her mother was a kind and gracious lady. Jane had five brothers and sisters at the time of her mother's death, when Jane was two. Her father remarried and her new stepmother brought two new step-brothers to the already large family. Jane was especially devoted to her father. He taught her tolerance, philanthropy, and a strong work ethic. He encouraged her to pursue higher education, but not at the expense of losing her femininity and the prospect of marriage and motherhood the expectation for all upper-class young ladies at that time. Jane attended the Rockford Seminary for young ladies and excelled in her studies. She also developed strong leadership traits. Her classmates admired her and followed her examples. Jane decided that she wished to pursue a degree in medicine when she completed her studies at Rockford. This choice caused a great stir in the Addams household. Her parents felt that she had had enough education and were concerned that she would never marry. Jane became despondent. She wanted more in life. If her brothers could have careers in medicine and science, why couldn't she? Besides, she disliked household duties and the prospect of raising children held no appeal.

Jane Addams Jane was born in 1860 in Cedarville, Illinois to a prosperous family. Her father was "Quaker-like" in his thinking and so encouraged Jane to pursue a real education and, if she chose, a career. Jane attended Rockford Seminary and then attempted medical school. She decided a trip abroad might help her clear her head so she could find her calling. It worked. Jane decided to dedicate her life to the uplifting of the poor and displaced. Through education, training and job opportunity, the poor could improve their situations. And she gave them that opportunity through Hull House in Chicago, Illinois. She received a Nobel Peace Prize for her work in 1931. Jane died in 1935. More about Jane Addams Exercises for further research
  • Ask the students to define charitable works. Relate it to the immediate family, then the community and, finally, to global projects. Have them give examples: helping a parent, grandparent or sibling at home; a marathon to raise funds; a school drive to collect for a hunger campaign; any ads they might see on TV for local social service agencies; international movements, such as Peace Corps, save the children campaigns, environmental organizations. Have the students organize a charitable event, such as a food or clothing drive for a shelter in the community. Help them to plan it and run it themselves. Create posters to advertise the drive at school, compose a "giving letter" to be sent home to parents. Have the students deliver the goods to the site. When their campaign is complete, discuss how they feel about what they did.

    Jane Addams
    Jane Addams was born in Cedarville Illinois on Sept. 6, 1860 and was educated at Rockford College, graduating in 1882. She is most well-known for founding Hull-House, located on the Near West Side of Chicago in 1889. She lived and worked there until her death in 1935.  At the time she was the nation's most distinguished woman influencing people through her writing, her social work, and efforts toward international peace.  In the area where Hull-House was located, a melting pot of first generation immigrants from Italy, Russia, Poland, Ireland, Germany, Greece and Eastern Europe had settled to find work in the industrialized city.  Jane Addams and her assistants provided the families with kindergarten and daycare services for working mothers, a job referral program, an art gallery, libraries, and music and art classes for the neighborhood residents.   By 1900 the Jane Club, a residence for working women, the Little Theater, a Labor Museum and a hall for trade union organizations had been established.   She and her cohorts also created the first juvenile court in the nation, and encouraged the Illinois legislature to make laws to protect women and children.  In 1903 a strong child labor law was passed along with a compulsory education law.  Their emphasis on education was seen in influencing the federal legislature to enact a federal child labor law in 1916.

    Swarthmore College Peace Collection, 500 College Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081 U.S.A.
    Laura Jane Addams was born on September 06, 1860 in Cedarville, Illinois, the youngest of four living children. She was the daughter of John Huy Addams, a wealthy grist mill owner and Illinois state senator (1854-1870), and Sarah Weber, who died in 1863. Her father married Anna Hostetter Haldeman in 1864, which brought two step-brothers into the family. Jane Addams graduated as valedictorian from Rockford Female Seminary (Illinois) in 1881, and was granted a Bachelor of Arts degree in June 1882. In 1883-1885, and again in 1887-1888, Addams toured Europe, seeing the sights and unlike most tourists viewing the poverty in the cities' slums and the efforts (such as Toynbee Hall) being made to alleviate it. In September 1889, Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr opened Hull-House to serve the immigrants in Chicago's nineteenth ward. By 1893, Hull-House had become a center for a wide variety of clubs, functions, classes and activities for the neighborhood. During the next forty years that Jane Addams resided there, Hull-House was to assume international significance as Addams and her associates championed the protection of immigrants, child labor laws and recreation facilities for children, industrial safety, juvenile courts, recognition of labor unions, woman suffrage, and world peace. Addams never drew a salary from Hull-House, but instead used her inheritance and the proceeds from her many books and articles to live on as well as to underwrite these causes.

    "Rediscovering Jane Addams" at Swarthmore College Visit the Conference's Website Jane Addams was the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Peace. Her impact on democracy, U.S. social policy, and international peace efforts will be discussed by biographers and scholars of her work at Swarthmore College on February 1-2 during a conference that is free and open to the public. (See the following program for a schedule of events.) "Addams had an optimism about the prospects and promises of a multicultural America," says Carol Nackenoff, a professor of political science at Swarthmore and a conference organizer. "Both her peace work and progressive views of domestic policy are relevant today, especially because of recent debates about immigration and the provision of social services to non-citizens." Renowned author and political philosopher Jean Bethke Elshtain will give the conference's keynote address. Elshtain, a professor of social and political ethics at the University of Chicago, is the author Jane Addams and the Dream of American Democracy and the editor of The Jane Addams Reader

    Jane Addams - (1860 - 1935) Cedarville By Brian Lewandowski and Sarina Hettenhausen
    Belleville Township High School East in Belleville, Illinois I. Upbringing, Education, and Professional Life (Laura) Jane Addams was born in Cedarville, Illinois as the eighth of nine children. Her parents, John and Sarah, moved to Illinois from Pennsylvania. Her father was a prosperous miller and also served sixteen years in the U.S. Senate. Later an officer in the Civil War, he also boasted a friendship with one of this country's greatest leaders, Abraham Lincoln. Jane Addams was born with a congenital spinal defect, which prevented her from being very active as a child. At the age of two, her mother died and her father remarried five years later. Her stepmother, Anna H. Haldeman, enrolled Addams in the Rockford (Illinois) Female Seminary at the age of seventeen. After graduating as valedictorian, she attended the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1881. Unfortunately, she was forced to drop out a few months later due to poor health. At the age of twenty-seven, Addams began her second tour of Europe with her friend Ellen Gates Starr. During her travels, she visited a settlement house in London's Industrial District known as Toynbee Hall, which catered to the needs of the local poor. Enthralled at the concept of such an establishment, she decided to begin such a house in the United States.

    Jane Addams Remembered When an individual in society does something of importance, people celebrate that achievement by honoring the person with awards and fame. If their achievements are of lasting value, they are honored even after their death. How people chose to remember famous individuals tells us about their beliefs and culture, because very often the celebrated person becomes an icon to an idea or way of life that the people in a society value. Jane Addams is one of these famous individuals. She worked for many different causes, ranging from abolishing child labor, to improving the nutritional health of a populace, to resolving international conflicts with peaceful means. She organized groups of like-minded people, created coalitions, offered solutions, created institutions, and maneuvered through the public eye in an attempt to try and solve the problems of the world around her. Yet depending on who you talk to, people remember her differently. Social workers remember her as the mother of social work, so they buy t-shirts and mugs with her image on them, because they see her as representing their ideals of social change. School boards name schools after her, for example

    Time Allotment

    Hull House was founded in 1889 by Jane Addams, along with her friend Ellen Starr. Jane had a very compassionate heart from the time she was a young girl. Everywhere she went, Jane had a desire to help people less fortunate than herself. Jane's father helped shape her to become more charitable to others less fortunate. Even as a young girl Jane wanted to know why all people didn't live in nice homes with yards like her own. One day she saw a part of town that was run down and she could hardly believe that people could live in such "horrid little houses" (Blackstock, p.8). That day Jane decided that she wanted to live in a large house in the middle of an awful place like she had seen. Jane wanted to do this so she could make a difference in the lives of people who lived there.
    Jane Addams was born on September 6, 1860, in Cedarville, Illinois. One year later the War between the North and the South started. That same year the telegraph lines reached coast to coast. While Jane was a young girl, President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.
    Jane had the opportunity to go to Rockford Female Seminary at the age of seventeen. It was there at Rockford that Jane decided she wanted to be a missionary in the United States to help the poor. Jane went to Rockford for four years and was an excellent student. She received the highest grades out of every member in her class. Jane enjoyed having fun but was also of a serious nature.
