Matt Crenson Featured Speaker at Closing Meeting

Save Thursday, May 17th for our Closing Meeting & Luncheon… at Suburban Country Club, 11am.

Our featured speaker is Matthew Crenson, professor emeritus of political science at Johns Hopkins University.   His topic is “Baltimore: Mobtown or Charm City?”

Just over one hundred years ago, an author with strong Baltimore ties published The Personality of American Cities.  The notion that cities have personalities – durable and distinctive cultures, characters, or traditions – survives today.  Baltimore’s personality is distinctive.  (Some would say quirky.)  Its development can be traced back to the town’s earliest days, and over the centuries that followed the city acquired a split personality – part Mobtown and part Charm City.
