III. THE PROGRESSIVES
Hear Jane Addams speak!! HALCYON DAYS
he role of social work expanded during the progressive era. The hallmark of the age was the rise of a progressive coalition between urban reformers and radically minded farmers. These two groups shared a belief that government could be an instrument for improvement. That political blend eventually led to the formation of the Progressive Party during Teddy Roosevelt's 3rd party campaign for the Presidency in 1916.
Those were halcyon days for the reformers of the settlement movement. Many of them, such as Lillian Wald, Florence Kelly and Paul Kellogg, rose to national prominence. Jane Addams became one most well known figures in the nation.
