Hull-House Photograph Collection, Special Collections and University Archives, University of Illinois at Chicago
From the early 1970s, the Special Collections Department of the University of Illinois at Chicago library collected thousands of original photographs and negatives that pertaining to Jane Addams, the Hull-House settlement house, Chicago's Near West Side, and other topics related to the history of Hull-House. This collection contains over 5,000 of the print photographs and negatives from that project. A hardcopy, folder-level index, organized topically, was prepared and updated periodically. This finding aid represents the most recent version of the folder-level description.
