The windows are boarded up, the roof needs replacing, the
staircase is basically nonexistent, and the floor joists
and kitchen are lost causes. Here is one old house even
Norm, Steve and the crew might have to pass up.
The two-story row house at 841 N.
Washington St. might not look like much now, but in a few
months a small army of Hopkins volunteers will have the
80-year-old structure looking better than new.
The renovation of this building is the
concept of John Grinnalds, senior director of Facilities
Management at the School of Medicine. The property was part
of a real estate deal made with an investor last April that
involved the university's acquisition of several homes
located just north of the JHMI campus.
HUT to fly again, but in a new
The Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope, a special telescope
built by university researchers for use in orbit aboard the
space shuttle, will fly again this fall for the first time
It's not quite the flight that the
project's principal investigator, Arthur Davidsen,
professor of physics and astronomy in the Krieger School
of Arts and Sciences, had hoped for, but he's still quite
pleased with the new journey.
HUT was removed last Thursday from the
Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy at Homewood for
shipment to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum
in Washington, D.C., where it will be hung from the ceiling
as part of a new exhibit, "Explore the Universe."
Speaker series marks Sociology's 40th
The Department of Sociology is celebrating its 40th
anniversary in a somewhat sentimental, and slightly belated,
fashion this spring by inviting old friends and former
students back to campus to share what they've been doing
since they left Mergenthaler Hall behind.
The department's annual spring speaker
series will commemorate its 40th anniversary, officially
marked by the start of the fall 1999 semester, with talks by
four former graduate students, each thriving in academic
careers at other universities, and Alejandro Portes, a Latin
studies scholar at Princeton who was a prominent faculty
member for 15 years at Hopkins.
