American Society in the Industrial Age

Nativism The policy of protecting the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants.
Tenement A house divided into and rented out as separate residences, especially one that is run-down and overcrowded.
Social Gospel Focused on improving living conditions rather than on saving souls.
Settlement Houses Community centers located in poor districts that provided guidance and services to all who used them.
Women Working outside their homes; the factory had almost completely replaced the household as the seat of manufacturing. They supplied a significant part of the industrial working force.
Immigration Industrial expansion increased the need for labor. Between 1866 and 1915 about 25 million foreigners entered the United States.
Horace Mann Favored state laws that supported public education.
Dwight L. Moody Encouraged people to consult the Bible for moral guidance and refrain from vice.
Jacob Riis and Lewis Hine Increased public awareness of poor immigrants' living conditions.
Jane Addams, Robert Woods, and Lillian Wald Settlement house organizers, and they showed immigrants and impoverished people how to cope with urban conditions.
