On this day in Hull-House history...
April 23, 1912: Helen Culver writes a letter to Jane Addams thanking her for her recently published work, "A New Conscience and an Ancient Evil". The cousin of real estate developer Charles Hull, Culver joined Hull in Chicago after his wife passed away and needed assistance raising his two children. Shortly after Hull passed away in 1889, Culver inherited the mansion and agreed to rent it to Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr, who kept the "Hull" family name in the Settlement's title.
