Cox, Joseph W. "The Origins of the Maryland Historical Society: A Case Study in Cultural Philanthropy." Maryland Historical Magazine 74 (June 1979): 103-16.
Annotation / Notes: Cox argues that the bourgeoning of state historical societies in the first of half of the nineteenth century represented a significant cultural statement about the concerns of the new nation regarding its past and future. He places the founding of the Maryland Historical Society in 1844 in the context of Baltimore's "boom-town" atmosphere of social and economic growth, but relative lack of comparable educational or cultural institutions. The Society was established by the city's emerging new elite, who viewed it as "the central cultural resource of the city and state" and hoped it would serve as the "region's leading cultural catalyst."
Davis, Richard Beale. Intellectual Life in the Colonial South 1585-1763, 3 vols. Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press, 1978.
Annotation / Notes: Davis's three-volume work surveys the "nature and development of the southern mind" during the colonial period and seeks to counter the standard interpretation of the predominant role of colonial New England in shaping the intellectual life of what would become the new nation. Topics include education, libraries and printing, religious writings, fine arts, literature, and public oratory. The volumes draw extensively on manuscript collections, some only recently discovered, in Britain and the United States, including important Maryland archives; chapters are followed by extensive bibliographies and notes.
White, Roger B. "Whither the Urban History Exhibit? The Peale Museum's 'Rowhouse'." Technology and Culture 24 (January 1983): 76-90.
Annotation / Notes: White argues that the Peale Museum's exhibit,"Rowhouse: A Baltimore Style of Living," reflected recent trends in urban and work history to interpret the lives and experience of ordinary--rather than extraordinary-urban residents. White explains how the exhibit represented a major shift from the Peale's more traditional offerings, contending that the focus upon the ubiquitous, yet distinctive, rowhouse form and its associated life-styles provided an effective way to make a fresh interpretive statement about the history of life in the city. The eventual demise of the Baltimore City Life Museums, of which the Peale was a constituent, lends a special importance to this commentary in terms of museum exhibition history in Baltimore.
