Jane Addams: Nobel Prize Winner and Founder of Hull Houseby Bonnie C. Harvey
Jane Addams was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize as a result of her involvement with the world peace movement in the early twentieth century. Highlighting Addams's lifelong determination to use her life productively and to help those less fortunate than herself, this book shows how Addams put her education and experiences to work in establishing Chicago's Hull House, one of the first settlement houses in the United States, where she ran programs to assist the urban poor on a daily basis.
