A panel of historians will describe their research concerning Greater Baltimore. Dr. Mary Ellen Hayward will discuss her use of business and land records while studying the Baltimore rowhouse. Philip Merrill will talk about his use of memorabilia, cultural artifacts and oral histories in his work on African American history.
