Annotation / Notes: The story of Babe Ruth's Baltimore background is well known. Fewer remember that Hall of Famer and Ruth rival, Jimmy Foxx, hailed from Maryland's Eastern Shore. A star with the Philadelphia Athletics and the Boston Red Sox, Foxx hit 58 home runs in 1932 and was that year's American League Most Valuable Player.

Otter, William. History of My Own Times or, the Life and Adventures of William Otter, Sen. Comprising a Series of Events, and Musical Incidents Altogether Original. Emmitsburg, MD: n.p., 1835; reprint. Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1995.
Annotation / Notes: William Otter (1787-1856) has left an entertaining autobiography of his life as a plasterer and practical jokester. Originally published in Emmitsburg in 1835, Otter's History offers an unusual glimpse into social history from an artisan's perspective. Whether Otter's humorous adventures and anecdotes are all true is debatable. His story does, however, suggest a continuation of the irreverent Maryland personality seen in the works of Ebenezer Cooke, Dr. Alexander Hamilton and Meshack Browning.
