Hull House Maps & Papers

Hull House is the most famous "settlement house" in American history. Jane Addams and her fellow residents were among the most important pioneers of empirical social science in the service of progressive reform. In 1895, Hull House published a compilation of information they had gathered about wages, ethnicities and other social variables. The residents had gathered this information in the neighborhoods surrounding Hull House in Chicago. To this day, the colored, statistical maps and explanatory essays stand as a milestone in the development of sociology, economics, and social work.
