In 1931 Miss Addams was co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and characteristically enough she donated the prize money to the Women's Peace Party. She died in Chicago on May 21, 1935.
The Beginnings
At nearby Rockford Seminary, too it was not yet a college the air was heavy with a sense of responsibility moral, cultural, and even social. Here the girls, most of them deeply religious, encountered a strong missionary tradition, and here too a compelling sense of the obligation of women to prove themselves in what was still a man's world. It was all very Victorian: the passion for Culture, the passion for Good Works. There was a brief effort to study medicine still a bit daring in the eighties and after that a long visit to Europe. She was sent abroad to drink up the culture of the Old World, like any Daisy Miller (Henry James was a fellow passenger), but she would have none of it. She wrote later, and bitterly, of "the sweet dessert in the morning, and the assumption that the sheltered, educated girl has nothing to do with the bitter poverty and the social maladjustment which is all about her, and which, after all, cannot be concealed, for it breaks through poetry and literature in a burning tide which overwhelms her; it peers at her in the form of the heavy-laden market women and underpaid street laborers, gibing her with a sense of her own uselessness."

Jane Addams, founder of Hull-House, is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize At age 71, Jane Addams (1860-1935) became the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, an honor which she shared with Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia University. Described at that ceremony as a spokesperson for all peace-loving women of the world, Addams had been actively engaged in the peace movement since 1914. Her struggle for peace was not easy. During the war, she was attacked as unpatriotic and demonized as an advocate of socialism and communism.
Prior to the beginning of World War I, Addams devoted most of her time to the Hull-House, a Chicago settlement house and educational center that attracted countless numbers of poor immigrants, and to political activities aimed at abolishing child labor. She was a natural leader, and, in spite of her frequent illnesses, she was at the forefront of the struggles for women's suffrage, immigrant education, health care, children's rights, housing, peace and progressive education.
Born in 1860, Jane was the eighth child of nine. Her mother died during childbirth when Jane was two and a half. Her father, John Addams, was a major influence in her life. He was a prosperous sawmill owner in rural Illinois and was concerned with public interest issues. Among John Addam's accomplishments, he helped to organize the first church and school in their home town and ran the first town library out of their house. Later in his life he was elected a state senator, as a staunch supporter of Abraham Lincoln, who would become a role-model for Jane in her early years.

Jane Addams, Mother of Social Work
Her Life of Activism from Cedarville to Hull House In 1915, a former garbage inspector for the Near West Side of Chicago was getting a lot of people in America riled up. Issuing a publication lambasting the intolerably unsanitary conditions of the housing available to the city's burgeoning immigrant population was bad enough. Suggesting that the city officials hadn't a clue about how to solve the problem and needed to be reeducated by a whole new class of voter was worse. But joining an International Congress in the Netherlands to put a stop to World War I and pull the teeth from the military in all countries was the limit. Could this be the same person who seconded the presidential nomination of Theodore Roosevelt at the Progressive Party convention in 1912? Could this be Jane Addams? Oh yes, it was Jane Addams alright, and those who neglected the poor, took advantage of minorities and believed in an all-male ruling class had reason to fear. Jane was on a roll. Her pamphlet entitled "Why Women Should Vote" made too much sense. She opened with the premise that a woman's simplest duty was just what men had been promoting all along. She was to "keep the house clean and wholesome and feed her children properly." Then the charmingly feminine Jane Addams turned ardent feminist. After all, she pointed out, how could these dutiful women possibly provide what was asked of them when the City Administration failed to ensure that their basements were dry, the stairwells fireproof, enough windows were provided for light and air, the garbage was properly collected and destroyed, and the tenement buildings were equipped with sanitary plumbing?

She completed college and went on to study medicine when ill-health caused her to leave school. During the 1880 she traveled with Ellen Gates Starr, a former classmate at the Rockford Female Seminary with whom she was said to have had a romantic friendship. In England, the pair discovered settlement houses, houses found in city slums occupied by social workers who provided services to the local community. Back in the United States in 1889, Addams and Starr founded Hull House in Chicago. By 1900, Hull House flourished as a popular center of political, educational and social activity. Due to the success of Hull House Addams became well-known and a nationwide settlement house movement began.

    Addams, Jane (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 whose letters to him began «My Dear Double D-'ed Addams». Because of a congenital spinal defect, Jane was not physically vigorous when young nor truly robust even later in life, but she became a graceful attractive woman after her spinal difficulty was remedied by surgery.
    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.

    Jane Addams A Foe of War and Need
    By THE NEW YORK TIMES t Hull House, in the squalid slums of Chicago's West Side, Jane Addams, a priestess of understanding among neighbors and of peace among nations, kept open hours for prince and pauper alike. It was her shrine and it will remain her monument. This pioneer settlement house, which she founded forty-six years ago, blazed the trail for a scientific approach to the relief of poverty and suffering and was the parent of much of the social legislation of the last four decades. Its founder and director, despite poor health, was the inspiration and fighting force behind a score of movements for reform and the betterment of mankind. Of all the causes she espoused, the dearest to her heart was the cause of disarmament and peace. For her life-long devotion to this ideal, she, with Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Columbia University, received the Nobel Peace Prize, her share of which she characteristically turned over to further the cause of peace. Honored by Many Universities More than a dozen universities, including Smith, Yale, Wisconsin and Chicago, recognized her achievements with honorary degrees and in May, 1931, Bryn Mawr bestowed upon her the M. Carey Thomas Prize of $5,000, awarded intermittently "to an American woman in recognition of eminent achievements."
