Publisher Description

"Twenty Years at Hull House" is the story of the Hull House settlement by its founder Jane Addams. The settlement movement, which gained popularity first in London at the end of the 19th century, soon spread to the United States and was principally involved in improving the lives of the urban poor by providing opportunities for higher education and essential social services. Hull House, one of the most famous of the "settlement houses", was located in the Near West Side community area of Chicago and was run by Jane Addams until her death in 1935. "Twenty Years at Hull House" is an important narrative of the settlement movement in the United States, which contributed significantly to the advancement of poor and working class peoples.
