Fuke, Richard Paul. "The Baltimore Association for the Moral and Educational Improvement of the Colored People, 1864-1870." Maryland Historical Magazine 66 (1971): 369-404.
Annotation / Notes: In 1864, Baltimore businessmen, lawyers and clergymen formed the Baltimore Association for the Moral and Educational Improvement of the Colored People. Many of these men had been associated with emancipation causes. These men coordinated the flow of money and supplies provided by the Freedmen's Bureau. Eventually, the schools founded by the Association were taken over by the state, which had initially not provided for free, public Negro education at all.

Jakmauh, Edward, and Robert Wales.Waterfront Study, Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland. Baltimore: n. p., 1975.
Annotation / Notes: A planners' survey evidently prepared for the American Bicentennial, the booklet provides a well-illustrated history of one of Baltimore's most important areas and its people, threatened at the time by an expressway. The threat of the highway has since been removed; unfortunately much of Fells Point's industrial architecture, unique in the city, has disappeared as well.
Annotation / Notes: The real Baltimore in historic photographs selected and annotated by one of the city's most diligent appreciators. The photographs of buildings are excellent and include many interiors.
Miller, Mark B.Baltimore Transitions; Views of an American City in Flux. Baltimore: Pridemark, 1998.
Annotation / Notes: Through historic and contemporary views of the same location, the author illustrates the dramatic effects of the automobile, the high-rise building, and other aspects of modern urban life on the Baltimore of a century ago.
Olson, Sherry.Baltimore: The Building of an American City. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1980.
Annotation / Notes: Geographer Olson's book, by far the most thorough illustrated history of Baltimore, is strong on geographic and commercial development, and gives less attention to the arts, including architecture. However it does feature many historic photographs of buildings and contemporary news accounts of their construction.
