Smith, C. Fraser. William Donald Schaefer: A Political Biography. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999.
Annotation / Notes: William Donald Schaefer's long and controversial career in Maryland politics is explored in this biography by Baltimore Sun columnist, C. Fraser Smith. As Mayor, Schaefer presided over an era of change in Baltimore when that city's economic and social dynamism was in turmoil. The successes and continuing problems in Baltimore today still bear the Schaefer imprint. His high profile style of administration continued during two terms as Maryland's Governor where he was less successful in putting his personal stamp on state government.

Brown, C. Christopher. "Maryland's First Political Convention by and for Its Colored People." Maryland Historical Magazine 88 (Fall 1993): 324-36.
Annotation / Notes: In 1852, forty-one African American delegates formed the first Colored Convention in Baltimore. Given the increasing restrictions on the mobility and employment opportunities available to free blacks since the early 19th century, the convention addressed the possibility of emigration to Liberia. For many black Marylanders, emigration appeared to be the only real political choice left to free blacks in the 1850s. Discussion of colonization before 1852 had been mostly a white concern, although there had been several black colonization societies as well. In the end, however, few Maryland blacks embraced colonization.
