Looking at Baltimore's Past, Today Art history professor emeritus Phoebe Stanton, who has been called the "guardian of Baltimore's architecture," recently spoke with news producer Sara Pines and photographer Al Storey at the George Peabody Library for an upcoming segment on the NBC News Today show. Stanton, who maintains an office at the library, described the makeup and design of some of Baltimore's neighborhoods, which she calls "the principal characteristic of this city." Stanton taught art and architecture from 1965 to 1985 at Hopkins, and now serves on the city design review panel under the commissioner of housing and the Architecture Review Board of the Inner Harbor and downtown areas. An octogenarian, Stanton says she is "working her head off" on a guidebook of Baltimore architecture; she has no plans to leave the city. The Today show plans to broadcast from Philadelphia before arriving in Baltimore Wednesday, Nov. 8, when the Stanton interview is scheduled to air.
