Shane Hamilton, Web Editor Addams, Jane Social reformer, settlement house pioneer (1860-1935) Jane Addams grew up in a cultured, middle-class, liberal environment in northern Illinois. Her mother died when she was two; her father was a prosperous businessman, state senator and fervent abolitionist. After graduation from Rockford Female Seminary in 1882, several years of travel, aborted studies, occasional charity work, depression and poor health followed. Concerned over urban poverty and seeking purpose in her own life, Addams gradually formulated the ambitious project which would become her life's work.
Jane Addams with a group of immigrant children In 1889, she and Ellen Starr purchased an old mansion in the middle of Chicago's immigrant neighborhoods and turned it into the Hull House settlement. This innovative institution aimed to alleviate the poverty and alienation of urban life, serving as community center, meeting place, nursery, educational resource, gymnasium, arts center and boardinghouse. Under Addams' leadership, the settlement also fought for progressive social reform, sponsoring studies of urban conditions and lobbying for legislation on housing, working conditions and child labor. Addams envisioned the settlement house not simply as charity for the poor, but as invaluable life experience for the educated, privileged but reform-minded young women who worked there. The success of Hull House spawned similar institutions in many other cities.

Jane Addams
Jane Addams of Hull House
by Naomi Segal Jane Addams was almost seven years old when she first sensed that city life was not all ice-cream cones and visits to the toy store. The daughter of a well-to-do Illinois businessman, Jane often went with her father on his trips to the mills that he owned. She loved playing in the great heaps of grain in the storerooms. Such a trip usually ended with a stop at the local candy store. One day in 1867, her father had business in the town of Freeport. The mill was adjacent (next) to the poorest section of town. As their horse and carriage turned into the street, Jane saw rows of run-down houses crowded one beside the other. Children dressed in ragged, dirty clothing played in the streets. Jane had never seen such a place before. Her family lived in a large house in the country. She always had clean clothes to wear and plenty of open space to play in. "Papa, why do these people live in such horrid little houses so close together?" she asked. "Because they have no money to live in better places," he replied.

Discuss whether or not Jane Addams and Hull House could have been as effective without "spreading their wings" into many areas. Note that some of the "firsts" shown on the Hull House list occurred many years after the death of Jane Addams. What does this tell us about the endurance of Hull House even today? Ask students to judge in what way Jane Addams is a model of philanthropy.

Jane Addams Founder of Hull-House in Chicago, first president of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and co-winner of the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize, Jane Addams was a dedicated crusader for social justice. Her lifes' work was to fight for the under priviliged and oppressed, also for the rights of workers, women and children. Jane Addams was born on September 6, 1860 in the small town of Cedarville, Illinois. As a child, Jane often felt like an outcast. She was "an ugly, piegon-toed little girl whose crooked back obliged her to walk with her head held very much upon one side." Even though she grew-up in a nice, well-kept community she felt overwhelming sorrow for those in other communities who lived in "horrid little houses," she was always asking herself what could be done to make them less horrid. Feeling like a misfit herself, Jane could sympathize with the misfits and outcasts of society. Jane studied at Rockford Seminary, a school for girls where the emphasis was on religion and Good Works. After having a breakdown, Jane was sent to Europe to "drink up the culture of the Old World," but instead Jane visited the factories and slums with her companion Ellen Starr. During one of her visits to London's East Side she came upon Toynbee Hall, a religious settlement house for London's poor. It was then that she decided to have her own settlement house one day, but without the emphasis on religion. When Jane and Ellen returned to Chicago they found an old mansion that was built by the merchant, Charles Hull and owned by Helen Culver, a woman known for her generosity. Jane bought the mansion and opened it as a settlement house on September 18, 1889, Hull-House was Chicago's first settlement house.

Jane Addams: The Story of Hull House
Image Courtesy of International year for the Culture of Peace (IYCP) Hull Mansion Images from the Jane Addams Collection,Swarthmore College Peace Collection We can all learn from Jane Addams today. In the United States, there are many immigrants. Laws are better than they were 100 years ago, but we all need to learn to work together. Jane Addams can teach us how to be better neighbors. The story of Hull House begins in 1889 with a remarkable person named Jane Addams. She was twenty-nine years old and worked with the poor in Chicago. The University of Chicago is now located where this great lady began her life's work. The work she did at Hull House made it famous and was wonderful in helping to change the way people work together. Imagine it is 1889, the world was different from today. Hull House was in what would now be called a ghetto. Everyone was from different countries. Life was hard, trash was in the streets, there were few schools, children worked in factories. Rats were everywhere. Families often had little food and the houses were in bad condition.

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's parents decided that the best course was to take Jane and her friends on a grand tour of Europe for a year or two. Perhaps Jane would settle down and realize that her duty was to marry and have a family. Jane began to show signs of serious illness during this time. Was her health affected by stress? There was the pressure to do her parents' bidding, and inner turmoil over whether or not to disobey them and choose a career.

Saint Bede Academy, Peru M ore and more frequently women are becoming involved in politics. In Illinois the case is no different. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century many women did not venture out of their home to take part in government. Jane Addams on the other hand never married and devoted her life to her work at Hull-House and to gaining rights for women and children. Although she never held a political office she was very influential in bringing women's and family issues into the political spotlight. Jane Addams was born in Cedarville, Illinois, in 1860. Addams was part of the first generation of college women.

Having quickly found that the needs of the neighborhood could not be met unless city and state laws were reformed, Addams challenged both boss rule in the immigrant neighborhood of Hull-House and indifference to the needs of the poor in the state legislature. She and other Hull-House residents sponsored legislation to abolish child labor, establish juvenile courts, limit the hours of working women, recognize labor unions, make school attendance compulsory, and ensure safe working conditions in factories. The Progressive party adopted many of these reforms as part of its platform in 1912. At the party's national convention, Addams seconded the nomination of Theodore Roosevelt for president and campaigned actively on his behalf. She advocated woman's suffrage because she believed that women's votes would provide the margin necessary to pass social legislation she favored. Addams publicized Hull-House and the causes she believed in by lecturing and writing. In her autobiography
