dc.description.abstractThis paper examines Jane Addams pioneering contributions to five fields. The late 19th and early 20th Century was a time when many academic and professional fields were becoming self-aware. Chicago transitioned from a physical frontier town to an intellectual frontier. Jane Addams, founder of Hull House and daughter of Chicago was a pioneer helping to build these fields. Public Administration has clear connections to social work, philosophy and sociology not so with Peace Studies. Yet public administration should be fully engaged in building the fabric of a peace-full society. Addams transforming notion of positive peace and her application of these Newer Ideals of Peace to local governance is a 21st Century PA frontier. This paper examines Addams pioneering role in philosophy, social work, sociology, peace studies and public administration. In addition, it explores the frontier of positive peace as a place of transition and transformation for public administration.en_US
