Jane Addams (1860-1935), US social worker and activist. Addams founded the world famous social settlement Hull-House on Chicago's Near West Side in 1889. Champion to the blight of recent immigrants, women and children, she forged a powerful reform movement. Among the projects she helped launch were the Immigrant's Protective League, the Juvenile Protective Association, the NAACP and the first juvenile court in America. She published eleven books in her lifetime and maintained an active speaking schedule advocating for the poor, women's suffrage, labor laws and reform, civil rights and world peace. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. This Harris and Ewing photograph dates from between 1905 and 1935.
