Jane Addams Papers Project

Preparation for publication of an online digital edition and print publication of volume 4 of the papers of social reformer and political activist Jane Addams (1860-1935). (24 months)

The Jane Addams Papers Project at Ramapo College of New Jersey’s Salameno School of Humanities and Global Studies publishes documents covering the years 1901-1935 in two formats. The first, a freely available digital edition, publishes images, transcriptions, and metadata for all correspondence and writings between 1901-1935. The second is the Selected Papers of Jane Addams, which provides transcribed and annotated versions of about 3% of the most historically significant texts. The digital edition is drawn from a digitization of an existing microfilm and the proceeds of an updated archival search. Another aim of the project is to serve as a lab for undergraduate students to gain practical experience in historical research, writing, public history, and digital humanities.
