Kalisch, Philip A. The Social History of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Ed.D. diss., The Pennsylvania State University, 1967.
Annotation / Notes: Baltimore businessmen, Enoch Pratt, had a goal to establish a free reading library that people could use it to acquire education and make themselves financial successful. Although the first two directors of this library were only moderately successful, they were responsible for laying the groundwork for a strong liberal arts collection, however, there was little outreach into the community. After 1926, the Pratt's directors guided the library to become a leading public library system, known for innovation, and for professional education. The author emphasizes the social objectives of the library and how the Pratt fits into the cultural world of Baltimore.
