Jane Addams and Hannah Greenebaum Solomon

"I consider Jane Addams the greatest woman of our century. She affected social service throughout the entire known world, and we who worked beside her in Chicago were privileged to see her proceed calmly, simply, and with directness and certainty as she faced the problems of the day."
