Smith, C. Fraser.William Donald Schaefer: A Political Biography. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999.
Annotation / Notes: William Donald Schaefer's long and controversial career in Maryland politics is explored in this biography by Baltimore Sun columnist, C. Fraser Smith. As Mayor, Schaefer presided over an era of change in Baltimore when that city's economic and social dynamism was in turmoil. The successes and continuing problems in Baltimore today still bear the Schaefer imprint. His high profile style of administration continued during two terms as Maryland's Governor where he was less successful in putting his personal stamp on state government.
