Hide Profile

Barbara Shipps was the great niece of Eleanor and Gertude Smith, who served as Hull-House residents and Music School teachers. Eleanor Sophia Smith was born in 1858 to Willard and Matilda Smith. In 1987, she moved into Hull-House to direct the recently established Music School. Her sister Gertrude joined her shortly thereafter. Gertrude composed music and taught until Eleanor retired, at which time she took over direction of the Music School. Shipps collected family mementos and transferred the collection to Special Collections in 2000.
