Putney, Martha S. "The Baltimore Normal School for the Education of Colored Teachers: Its Founders and Its Founding." Maryland Historical Magazine 72 (Summer 1977): 238-52.
Annotation / Notes: The author examines the background of the founders and the founding of the Baltimore Normal School for the Education of Colored Teachers, which today is Bowie State College. The author traces the founding of the school to an endowment left by a free black man and the Society of Friends (Quakers). The founding of the school took place during a time when the notion of educating black people was not widely accepted.
Wennersten, John R., and Ruth Ellen Wennersten. "Separate and Unequal: The Evolution of a Black Land Grant College in Maryland, 1890-1930." Maryland Historical Magazine 72 (Spring 1977): 110-17.
Annotation / Notes: The authors examine how Princess Anne Academy on the lower Eastern Shore of Maryland developed after 1890 as a state and federally supported land grant school. Like other land grant schools, Princess Anne Academy was neglected by state and federal agencies. This academy was an example of separate education provided for blacks which demonstrated how land grant schools were indeed separate ad unequal.

Garrigus, Carl E., Jr. "The Reading Habits of Maryland's Planter Gentry, 1718-1747." Maryland Historical Magazine 92 (Spring 1997): 36-53.
Annotation / Notes: Studies of reading habits have enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, and this article builds on pioneering research in the 1930s of Joseph Towne Wheeler in analyzing the contents of colonial Maryland bookshelves. The change in reading preferences that occurred in the later eighteenth century brought much greater diversity to personal libraries that formerly were dominated by devotional, legal and classical titles. There also is evidence that reading before 1750 was more intensive, that is, readers tended to return to the same text or passage for repeated readings. This, coupled with the expense of purchasing and importing books, helps explain the relative paucity of published works owned by the literate elite in colonial Maryland.

Anderson, Patricia Dockman. "Laying the Foundations: Herbert Baxter Adams, John Thomas Scharf, and Early Maryland Historical Scholarship." Maryland Historical Magazine 89 (Summer 1994): 170-83.
Annotation / Notes: Adams and Scharf were two of Maryland's leading late nineteenth century historians. They, however, represented two very different historical schools. Adams, a Johns Hopkins professor, was instrumental in the professionalization of the history discipline. Scharf was a "chronicler", a local historian. He also had a strong interest in document preservation. Adams played a pivotal role in the donation of Scharf's collection to Hopkins. Scharf's collection is now housed at the Maryland State Archives.
