The Jane Addams Papers Project

Dr. Cathy Moran Hajo re-launched the Jane Addams Papers Project at Ramapo College of New Jersey’s Salameno School of Humanities and Global Studies in 2015 with a new approach to making the materials available. Her goals are to digitize documents covering the years 1901-1935, making them freely available and searchable, to provide context for the documents by adding identifications of people, places, events, and organizations, to locate additional Addams materials and add them to the edition, and complete the remaining volumes of the Selected Papers of Jane Addams covering 1901-1935. An overarching aim of the project is to serve as a lab for undergraduate students to gain practical experience in historical research, writing, public history, and digital humanities.
