The Selected Papers of Jane Addams, 1889-1900, Volume 3

The preparation of volume 3 of the papers and the beginning of preparation for volume 4.

The Jane Addams Papers Project seeks support to prepare the manuscript for volume three of the edition to be published in print and on the Internet by the University of Illinois Press. It will feature "behind-the-scenes" and timely descriptions of the founding and development of the social settlement Hull-House in Chicago, present the emergence of a variety of reform movements, reveal a growing group of reformers, some known, some not-so-well known, and illuminate the continuing development of Jane Addams (1860-1935) as a leader and national spokesperson for social reform, 1889-1900. Prepared using accepted documentary editing standards, this edition will provide an ever-widening audience, scholars to general readers, with direct access to Addams's words and deeds through the organized publication of the key documents with the editors providing the indispensable service of carefully transcribing and annotating difficult-to-decipher handwritten documents for readers.
