Designed by architect Irving K. Pond and initially directed by sociologist Charles Zeublin, the Northwestern University Settlement House was founded in 1891 -- two years after Hull House opened. Northwestern Settlement House served the mainly Polish immigrant population. The accompanying photographs show Anna Kralovec, a nurse, and Dr. R. M. Hutchinson with women and babies gathered around a table in the House in 1919, and the House as it stands today.
