Twenty Years at Hull-House by Jane Addams (HC 1916)
Content Description: This book appears to be a memoir of Jane Addams time at Hull House. In the preface Jane Addams writes "the people with whom I have so long journeyed have become so intimate a part of my lot that they cannot be written of either in praise or blame, the public movements and causes with which I am still identified have become so endeared, some of them through their very struggles and failures, that it is difficult to discuss them. It is also hard to determine what incidents and experiences should be selected for recital... for these reasons and many others I have found it difficult to make a faithful record of years...since I came to live in an industrial district of Chicago."
