Annotation / Notes: East Baltimore's Station Number Eleven, which began in two rooms in a settlement house was amazingly successful in servicing its Jewish immigrant population with very mere resources. This article includes some discussion in the early 20th century library controversy of whether or not libraries should collection non-English works. Also stressed is the role the public library played in the Americanization of the immigrant.

Carey, George. "A Sampler of Baltimore's Folk Culture." Johns Hopkins Magazine 27 (January 1976): 8-12.
Annotation / Notes: George Carey, former Maryland state folklorist, notes that folklore often has been understood as applying to rural and traditional ways of life, but he insists that the concept is equally relevant for the study of urban settings like Baltimore. The most obvious examples he finds in the city's ethnic neighborhoods, both European and African American, including Ukrainian-American Easter egg designs, window screens painted by Czech-Americans, and African-American A-rabing (street hawker) cries, songs, and storytelling.
Fee, Elizabeth, Linda Shopes, and Linda Zeidman, eds. The Baltimore Book: New Views of Local History. Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1991.
Annotation / Notes: Essays on aspects of the social history of Baltimore provide case studies of social issues and neighborhood dynamics. Paired chapters first consider the lives of ordinary B&O Railroad workers involved in the railroad strike of 1877, then examine the powerful family of B&O magnate John Work Garrett. Chapters on work consider the area's mill villages, the garment industry, and union activity. Studies of neighborhoods address the history of Fells Point in terms of race and ethnicity and racial change in west Baltimore.
