Abstract
The Whittier House Social Settlement, the first settlement house in New Jersey, was established in Jersey City, N.J. in 1894. Founded by Cornelia Foster Bradford, who would remain with the organization as headworker until 1926, Whittier House was based on the settlement house Toynbee Hall in England. Annual reports include reports on all Whittier House programs and activities, including the kindergarten, sewing school, legal assistance for the poor, the mothers' club, a loan fund for the poor, classes (including stenography, bookkeeping, English, elocution, Latin, German, art, and dancing), a circulating library, and an occupational bureau to help young people find jobs. Annual reports include photographs of Whittier House residents, neighborhood children, club meetings, outings and the Whittier House facilities. Some annual reports are photocopies.
