Was Jane Addams a Unitarian?

No record has been found that she formally joined a Unitarian Church, but she was in regular attendance, when in Chicago, at a Unitarian Church and an Ethical Society.  (She was once appointed an "interim lecturer" at the Ethical Society.) She was also close to many Unitarians and, while she remained a member of a Presbyterian Church, her views changed over her lifetime so that in her older years, it would be unfair to describe her as a traditional Christian.

Why is she here on the "Famous UUs" page? Primarily to make this clarification. She is often included in Famous UUs lists.
