A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SECONDARY SOURCES RELATING TO BALTIMORE HISTORY based on the work of Dean Krimmel, Anita Kassof, and Richard Longstreth

In the spring of 1996, it was divided into the following sections to reflect the exhibition’s thematic organization, and subsequently amended to include a bibliography of built Baltimore by Richard Longstreth.  Suggestions for additions, updates, and reorganization are welcome.  Email us at
