Jane Addams to Earlham College, August 1920 (excerpt)


Small College Has Great Work, Says Miss Addams; [Endorses] Earlham Drive

Jane Addams, famous social worker of Chicago, has sent her [endorsement] of the Earlham College endowment drive, from Hull House, Chicago. It follows:

"Earlham College represents the small college whose full collegiate work is carried on with a close intellectual companionship between student and professor. This type of college is perhaps the finest contribution America has made to the methods of higher education and can only be preserved under modern conditions if it has ample endowment.

From my own personal knowledge of Earlham, I bespeak help for it in this effort for a five hundred thousand dollar endowment."
