NAMED AFTER: JOHN LOVEJOY ELLIOTT (1868 - 1942)– A dynamic humanist, Elliott fell in love with one of the city's worst neighborhoods and dedicated his life to the people there. That area is the Chelsea-Elliott section of Manhattan's West Side in the 20s. He was a major force in getting the Chelsea and Elliott developments built. He founded the Hudson Guild a neighborhood settlement house that still provides activities and a summer camp program for youngsters in the area. Elliott was a senior leader of the Ethical Culture Society where he taught ethics, teachings he also brought to the Hudson Guild and the people of the area. Elliott Houses is in Manhattan.
