Class of 1970, 1971, and 1972 - 50th Reunion Lecture
10:00am - 11:30am
AMR Annex Building 
Sponsored by the class of 1970. City dwellers have long believed that their cities have distinct "personalities."  In fact, there are on-line questionnaires that are supposed to help you find the city whose personalities most nearly match your own personality. Social scientists don't talk much about urban personalities, but they recognize that cities have distinct cultures or traditions -- pretty much the same thing. And, the sociologists and geographers who have addressed this subject agree that the key to urban culture is urban history. Events and decisions of the past help to restrict each city's options and lead them down narrowing channels to their current circumstances and "personalities." Join Dr. Crenson as he examines Baltimore's history to find the developments and events that have shaped its current character.

Dr. Crenson is an expert in urban government and American political development. His most recent book, "Baltimore: A Political History," examines the political history of Baltimore and some of the city's challenges. Dr. Crenson began teaching political science at Johns Hopkins in 1969.
