    Jane Addams ... Radio Address
    (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.
    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.

    Biography and links for the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
    Jane Addams
    Source: Lincoln Library of Essential Information, Frontier Press Company (1924)
    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 charter member 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.

    Sarah Weber Jane Addams (September 6, 1860 – May 21, 1935) was the first American woman to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize . In a long, complex career, she was a pioneer settlement worker and founder of Hull House in Chicago, public philosopher (the first American woman in that role), sociologist, author, and leader in woman suffrage and world peace. She was the most prominent woman of the Progressive Era and helped turn the nation to issues of concern to mothers, such as the needs of children, public health and world peace. She emphasized that women have a special responsibility to clean up their communities and make them better places to live, arguing they needed the vote to be effective. Addams became a role model for middle-class women who volunteered to uplift their communities. She is increasingly being recognized as a member of the American pragmatist school of philosophy.

On the second trip she visited Toynbee Hall, a pioneering Christian settlement house in London, which was to inspire her in a direction that propelled her toward international prominence (TYH 53). Los Angeles Times quipped, If Miss Addams and her peace mission are a sample of women in world affairs, I want to take it all back. I am sincerely sorry I voted for suffrage. (Davis, 253)

    vice versa. Historian Rosalind Rosenberg describes Addams as a de facto Liberalism and Social Action to Addams. Dewey named one of his daughters in her honor and Addams wrote the eulogy for Dewey's son Gordon (EBP). th century when Mead, Dewey, and Addams were together in Chicago, the intellectual genealogy of American philosophy, sociology and social work has more drastically diverged to a point where crossover is less likely and perhaps less welcome. Lost in the compartmentalization of these disciplines is how Jane Addams played a role in each.

    Jane Addams 1860- 1935
    by Nicolle Bettis
    On September 6, 1860 Laura Jane Addams was born to Sarah Weber Addams and John Addams, the same year in which Abraham Lincoln ran for president (1971, ix). It has been noted that Jane's father and Lincoln were such good friends letters would come addressed to Addams as "My Dear Double D'-'ed Addams" ( She became very close to her father, as she was his last link to Sarah, and became extremely fond of him as he was of her. She began to mimic everything he had done from the scarring of her hands that came with milling to reading every book in the village library (1971). Jane had "half expected and fully hoped to grow up to be her father" (1971, 15). Jane later states that her father was the one who incorporated her into "the moral concerns of life" (1971, 9). Jane recalls in her book, Twenty Years at Hull House , which has been seen as autobiographical, her first encounter with poverty. She remembered asking her father why people lived in awful little houses so close together. Then replied, she would have a large house in the middle of all the terrible small ones (1910).

        American Roots Jane Addams was a country girl who reformed the big city. A native of rural Illinois in nineteenth- century mid-America, she went to booming, roaring Chicago, forged her lifework amid teeming streets and squalid tenements, and permanently changed the metropolis of her state. Only a genius could have done this. Jane Addams was a genius who, luckily, arrived on the scene at just the right moment to play her role in history. Between her birth in 1860 and her establishment of Hull-House in 1889, the United States, rising from the disaster of the Civil War, became a nation less and less agrarian, more and more urban. And Jane Addams imaginatively and energetically utilized the new urban environment, with its unsolved problems, to carry out the mission to which she dedicated herself. That mission, based on individual effort, mutual help, peaceful reform, and faith in progress, placed her squarely in the American traditionappropriately, for she had deep American roots. Her parents, John Huy Addams and Sarah (Weber) Addams, were originally from Pennsylvania, where their ancestors had lived since Colonial times. In 1681, William Penn had granted a tract of land in his new colony to an Englishman named Robert Adams, who crossed the Atlantic and became one of the earliest Pennsylvanians. He was joined by his brother Walter, progenitor of the line that produced Jane Addams. Walter's son Isaac (Jane's great-grandfather) seems to have been the first "Addams," adding the extra "d" apparently to avoid confusion with a relative of the same name. Isaac's son was Samuel Addams, and
