    Good afternoon, I am researching the history of Little Italy for a book. I’m a little confused as I’m finding names of articles I’d like to read, such as the examples listed below. Could you clarify … are they available for view online? Or is a physical visit necessary?

    Grazie,
    Suzanna Molino, Director
    Promotion Center for Little Italy, Baltimore

    Reilly, Sara Jean. “The Italian Immigrants: 1920-1930: A Case Study in Baltimore.” M.A., Johns Hopkins University, 1962. [Full study of settlement organizations, etc.]

    Arnold, Joseph L. “Baltimore Neighborhoods, 1800-1980.” WorkingPapers from the Regional Economic History Research Center 4 (1981): 76-98.

      Suzanna, this is a bibliography created by Dean Krimmel and Richard Longstreth. It is on our website to help people direct their research, but we own very very few of these, and most are not available online. I would suggest visiting the Maryland Department at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, the library at the Maryland Historical Society, and nearby universities to find these volumes.

    Okay, now I understand, thanks so much, Amy. I have already visited the Maryland Room at Enoch Pratt. I need to go back again.
