Founder of Hull-House, a settlement residence for needy immigrants and active suffrage advocate, Jane Addams dedicated her wealth and talent to bring about systemic change. She advocated for issues affecting the poor; such as child labor laws and reduction of work hours and she sought to give women the right to vote. For 40 years she dedicated herself to remedying the causes of poverty and injustice.
"Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world."
Jane Addams
Born September 6, 1860 Cedarville, Illinois
Died May 21, 1935 Chicago, Illinois
Chicago in the late 1800's was inhabited by two groups of people - the poor and the wealthy. Born into a life of comfort, Laura Jane "Jennie" Addams chose to utilize her wealth and talents to benefit the less fortunate. On September 18, 1889, at the age of 29, along with Ellen Gates Starr, a college friend, she established Hull-House, the first social settlement, in Chicago, to serve the needy. Recognized as being the first location for community based service centers in America, this structure is now a National and Chicago Historic Landmark signifying the achievements of Jane Addams.

Jane Addams - Founder of NAACP 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'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.

We Buy Books Search Forms Gallery Newsletter Laura Jane Addams was born on September 6, 1860 in Cedarville, Illinois. From a young age she had a selfless desire to help others and needed only to learn how to reach those in need. On a trip to England she visited Toynbee Hall, one of the first settlement houses. Addams took home with her the idea of an institution placed in and devoted to a poor neighborhood. On September 18, 1889 Addams and her friend Ellen Gates Starr opened Hull House in Chicago. An old mansion was restored and open for use by the local poor and recently immigrated. Addams and Starr cared for the children of working parents and taught classes. They fought for the rights of the city's poor, aiding to change child labor laws and safety standards. These early acheivements developed the role of the social worker as we know it. She went on to form the Women's Peace Party during World War I. As a result of her life long commitment, Jane Addams became the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize , awarded in 1931.

Jane Addams's reputation gradually was restored during the last years of her life. She continued to run Hull House and work on other peacemaking activities. Addams was president of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom and traveled overseas to meet with officials of other nations to persuade them of the importance of working to preserve world peace. Addams was rewarded for her efforts in 1931 with the Nobel Peace Prize. The prize is awarded annually by a committee in Norway to those who have made major contributions to world peace efforts. She was the first American woman to win this prize. There are many women today who have followed Addams's lead. Do you know any of them?

Click Here to Visit our Sponsor

Jane Addams was one of many reformers dedicated to social change at the turn of the century. Her primary contribution was the founding and managing of a settlement house called Hull House. Hull House was founded in 1889 in the slums of Chicago. A settlement house was a means to mitigate the harsh conditions of poverty found in the cities. The house would be staffed by trained social workers who also lived in the house. These workers would do whatever they could to help their neighbors. They would educate them through lectures and providing books, they would care for the children, they would honor and care for the elderly. They pushed for legislative reforms like child labor laws and clean streets. They did what they could to facilitate the integration of immigrants into the United States, and above all they provided a place for people to get together just to socialize. In recognition of her efforts, Jane Addams was awarded the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize.

Reformers Page 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. Few realize that she was also a advocate in the areas of labor reform, laws that governed working conditions for children and women and was a founder of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). In 1893 a severe depression rocked the country. Hull House was serving over two thousand people a week. As the charitable efforts increased, so too did political ones. Jane realized that there would be no end to poverty and need if the laws could not be changed. She directed her efforts at the causes of poverty. The workers joined Jane in pressuring the state of Illinois to look at the laws governing child labor, the laws for the factory inspection system, the juvenile justice system; they worked for legislation to protect immigrants from exploitation, limit the working hours of women, mandate schooling for children , recognize labor unions and provide for industrial safety. She became a very controversial figure while working on behalf of economic reform. When the awful working conditions turned into the

Return to the full article Jane Addams, 1860–1935 Jane Addams—pioneer social worker, feminist, and internationalist—represented the peace movement in the United States. She was awarded the peace prize in 1931. In 1889, Addams opened Hull House, an institution dedicated to improving the lives of Chicago’s working poor. Two thousand people a week used its services, which included kindergarten and adult classes, a public kitchen, swimming pool, circulating library, employment bureau, gym-nasium, art studio, and music school. Addams was a member of the Board of Education, president of the National Conference of Charities and Corrections and held various other civic posts. In 1910, she received the first honorary doctoral degree awarded to a woman by Yale University. Aspiring to rid the world of war, Addams spoke, taught, and published on peace in America and abroad, accepting in 1915 the chair of the Woman’s Peace Party and later that year the presidency of the International Congress of Women, which met at The Hague. It included 1,100 women from 11 countries, whose mission was to formulate a plan for ending World War I. The congress called for a scientific commission of experts from neutral countries, appointed by their governments, to act as a perpetual court of mediation, continually offering proposals to the belligerents without assigning war guilt. Addams headed a delegation from the congress to approach the foreign ministers of each of the belligerents to offer the women’s proposal for ending the war. Despite their efforts, the war continued for three more years.

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
Written by Julie Greiner
The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is located at 800 South Halsted Street on the University of Illinois campus. The Hull-House Museum commemorates the work of social welfare pioneer and peace advocate Jane Addams, her settlement house associates, their innovative programs and the neighborhood they served. The museum is in an original Hull-House building which is preserved and operated by the University of Illinois.
History of Hull House
The Hull Mansion was built in 1856 by Charles J. Hull and was occupied by Jane Addams in 1889. The furnishings are original and depict the history of the settlement and the work of its residents. Jane Addams, Florence Kelley, Dr. Alice Hamilton, Julia Lathrop, Ellen Gates Starr, Sophonisba Breckinridge and Grace and Edith Abbott were among the residents. They provided services for the neighborhood, such as kindergarten and daycare facilities for children of working mothers, an employment bureau, an art gallery, libraries and music and art classes. Among the projects that they launched were the Immigrant's Protective League, The Juvenile Protective Association, the first juvenile court in the nation and a Juvenile Psychopathic Clinic (later called the Institute for Juvenile Research).

Books for preschool through high school ages are eligible, including translations or titles published in English in other countries. Beginning in 1993, a Picture Book category was added to the award.

80. Irwin Abrams: Emily Greene Balch - The First Quaker Nobel Peace Prize Winner
After the war the American section of WILPF decided that it had been long enoughsince the nobel prize for jane addams and now it was time to attempt to secure
By Irwin Abrams This essay appeared in the December 1996 issue of Friends Journal As Friends begin to think about how to commemorate in 1997 the 50th anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize that was shared by the AFSC and the British Friends Service Council in 1947, it is well to be reminded that 1996 is the 50th anniversary of the prize which the Quaker Emily Greene Balch, the leader of the Womens's International League for Peace and Freedom, shared with John Mott of the YMCA in 1946. She was only the third woman to win the prize, after Baroness Bertha von Suttner in 1901 and Jane Addams in 1931. Emily Balch (1867-1961), raised as a Unitarian, joined Friends in 1920 when she was in Geneva establishing the international headquarters of the WILPF. She applied to London Yearly Meeting, preferring to avoid the divisions of American Quakerism. What attracted her to Friends was not only "their testimony against war, their creedless faith, nor their openness to suggestions for far-reaching social reform," It was "the dynamic force of the active love through which their religion was expressing itself in multifarious ways, both during and after the war." When she returned to live in Wellesley in her last years, she transferred her membership to Cambridge (Massachusetts) Meeting. In 1915 Emily Balch was already a distinguished social scientist when she joined Jane Addams and the intrepid international band of women who vainly attempted to stop World War I by persuading statesmen of both neutral and belligerent states to agree to a mediation process.. She then tried to prevent American intervention in the conflict and continued her opposition after the United States entered the war. This brought about her dismissal from Wellesley College, ending a teaching career of twenty years. She continued to work for peace for the rest of her life, both through WILPF and individually, She was granted the Nobel prize as the acknowledged dean and intellectual leader of the United States peace movement.
