Florence Scala at Hull House
In the spring of 1963, Florence Scala spoke in the garden of Hull House Settlement. She described the legal battle that she and others waged to prevent the demolition of the Near West Side neighborhood (including most of the settlement facilities) for the construction of the new University of Illinois campus. The end of their legal battle marked the end of the active settlement complex at its location on South Halsted Street.
