Ellen Gates Starr

Co-founder, with Jane Addams, from the Hull Home in Chicago, a middle for infancy treatment and continuing education for adults. She fulfilled Addams on the Rockford Feminine Seminary, a liberal arts organization in Illinois, with both finding that they had very similar convictions. Following the founding of Hull Home, she campaigned for the reform of kid labor laws as well as the improvement of functioning circumstances for blue-collar laborers in Chicago. She was created in near Laona, Illinois. Thinking that exercising arts was the ultimate way to push away monotony, she trained community associates of her Hull Home the functions of poets like William Shakespeare.
