Krummel, D.W., Jean Geil, Doris Dyen, and Deane Root.Resources of American Music History, A Directory of Source Materials from Colonial Times to World War II. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1981.
Annotation / Notes: Here is a great single resource by which to determine where in Maryland one might find collections of music and music-related archival materials. The authors describe the contents of twenty-four Maryland repositories, from libraries and historical societies to educational institutions and privately owned collections. An excellent index allows searching for Maryland-related items being held in other states, too.

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.

Baltimore Museum of Art.:Annual I The Museum: Its First Half Century. Baltimore: The Baltimore Museum of Art, 1966.
Annotation / Notes: A history of the first fifty years of the BMA, from its start as a City-Wide Congress Committee on Founding an Art Museum (1911), to its temporary home in Mount Vernon, to the construction of its permanent home in Wyman Park. A major thesis is that a very modern thinking museum became a great success in a city known for being conservative. Nicely illustrated with works from the collection and photographs of museum activities.
