Addams participated in a tribute dinner to Mary Augusta Ward, held by the Playground Association of America. The event was held on March 31, 1908, at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel, where Addams discussed the need for play, art, and creativity, and warns that without such outlets men will fall to drink and immoral behavior. She highlighted the lack of healthy entertainments, especially for young women. The speech was published in Playground in April.
