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.
