From the Paper:

"Jane Addams (1860-1935) founded the social work profession to help children and adults who live in poverty. She grew up in Cedarville, a small village in northwestern Illinois. Her father was a prosperous businessman, and Ms. Addams received her degree from Rockford College in 1882. From the time she was very young, she was concerned for the poor in her neighborhood. During a visit to London, England, Jane was shocked at the poverty she saw, and though she had no idea at what she could do, she vowed to one day do something to help other people. When she observed the social experimentation being done at Toynbee Hall in England, she decided to begin a similar center in Chicago, one where she could put her social principles into action and work for a better way of life for people there."
