Abstract:

Correspondence, minutes, monographs, reports, recommendations, handbills, newsclippings, notes, poems, and other papers of Madeline Wallin Sikes, a Chicago teacher and clubwoman and wife of George Cushing Sikes. Includes correspondence with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred M. Wallin, and materials on her many social service activities in women's organizations and Chicago political activities, notably the League of Cook County Women's Clubs, the National Consumer's League, the Chicago Child Saving League, the League of Women Voters, the Woman's Club of Austin, the General Federation of Women's Clubs, the Association of Collegiate Alumnae, the Chicago Woman's Club, and the Mothers' Congress of Illinois. The papers contain a significant amount of material on her work with educational legislation, child labor legislation, and protective labor legislation for women.

Collection also includes sundry items relating to Sikes' and her husband George Cushing Sikes' work with Jane Addams and Hull-House, letters and other items of George Cushing Sikes from the Chicago Record, plus a few papers of their daughter Eleanor Sikes Peters. George Sikes's letter of July 24, 1894, concerns George M. Pullman and the Pullman strike and mentions Jane Addams; his Feb. 29, 1896, letter deals with Miss Addams' efforts to have him run for alderman against John Powers.
