Jane Addams Hull-House Museum Collections Intern

Hull-House is looking for an intern to help with inventory of the collection in the Spring 2015 semester.  Hull-House, Chicago’s first social settlement was not only the private home of Jane Addams and other Hull-House residents, but also a place where immigrants of diverse communities gathered to learn, to eat, to debate, and to acquire the tools necessary to put down roots in their new country. The Museum is comprised of two of the settlement complex’s original thirteen buildings; the Hull-Home and the Residents’ Dining Hall. These spaces were used variously over the years, including as a nursery school, a library, and a salon for social and political dialogue.
