Bibliography of Secondary Sources Relating to Baltimore History


based on the work of

Dean Krimmel, Anita Kassof, and Richard Longstreth

This bibliography was begun by Dean Krimmel in the late 1980s during the initial planning phase for the Baltimore City Life Museums’ long-term exhibition I AM THE CITY. 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.  Use the comments section of this web site.

I. City by the Water (1750-1850)

II. City of Neighborhoods (1850-1950)

III. City & Suburbs (1950-present)

IV. Baltimore & Maryland: An Overview (across eras)

V. The African-American Experience in Baltimore and Maryland (across eras)

VI. Selected Non-Baltimore/Maryland Sources on the African-American Experience

VII. Immigration and Ethnicity in Baltimore: A Selected Bibliography (across eras)

VIII. Coming to Baltimore: A Selected Bibliography on Immigration

IX. Built Baltimore by Richard Longstreth

      Terry, thanks so much for pointing this out. We have changed the format and added all the information that was missing before. Hope you find it helpful!
