Since its founding in 1925, the University of Baltimore has become one of Maryland's premier educational institutions. Originally organized as a practical solution for working men and women seeking a college degree, the institution developed rapidly-the School of Law and the College of Business Administration, begun in the founding year as evening professional schools, were joined by a day division and, in 1937, a junior college. Finally, in 1961, the university began its College of Liberal Arts to meet the demand for a relatively low-cost, liberal arts college education. Containing over two hundred black-and-white photographs from the archives of the Langsdale Library, University of Baltimore explores the school's history, from its birth in October 1925 to the present day, the eve of its seventy-fifth anniversary. From the founding of the first Greek societies and African-American clubs on campus to the anti-war protests of the 1960s, from the beginning of the sports program in 1928 to the championships won over the decades, the University of Baltimore has led a vital life and provided opportunity to a countless many. Through the images and captions contained in this visual tribute to the university, readers will meet the school's founding pioneers, as well as the administrators, faculty, and staff who have helped shape the university's past, present, and future, and most importantly, the students and alumni who have always made the University of Baltimore an exciting place to work and learn.
