Preparation for digital and print publication of Volume 4 of the papers of social reformer and political activist Jane Addams (1860-1935). See website at

The Jane Addams Papers Project (JAPP) at Ramapo College of New Jersey’s Salameno School of Humanities and Global Studies (SSHGS) will publish documents covering the years 1901-1935 in two formats. The first, a freely available digital edition will publish images, transcriptions, and metadata for all correspondence and writings between 1901-1935. The second is the Selected Papers of Jane Addams, which will transcribe and publish about 3% of the most historically significant texts, providing detailed annotation and a narrative theme. The digital edition will be drawn from a digitization of an existing microfilm and the proceeds of an updated archival search. An overarching aim of the project is also to serve as a lab for undergraduate students to gain practical experience in historical research, writing, public history, and digital humanities.
