"Small Town Baltimore" Author to Speak at Hopkins

Gilbert Sandler, popular columnist for The Sun and The Baltimore Jewish Times, will give a lecture, "Small Town Baltimore: An Album of Memories," at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 9, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

Sandler's Johns Hopkins University Press book by the same name sketches life in Baltimore from the 1920s through the 1970s. He takes readers back to a time before Harborplace and the Convention Center, Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the Ravens, when most Baltimoreans would agree that living here was like living in a small town. Sandler shows how Baltimore has veered from its "Charm City" roots and what has been lost in the process. Small Town Baltimore will be available for sale and signing after the lecture.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Sandler received his bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a master's degree from The Johns Hopkins University. Following service as a ship's navigator in the U. S. Navy and a career in advertising and public relations, he wrote a weekly column, "Baltimore Glimpses," for more than 25 years, first in the Evening Sun and later in The Sun. Since 1997, he has also written about Baltimore's Jewish community for The Baltimore Jewish Times. His other books are Jewish Baltimore: A Family Album, The Neighborhood: The Story of Baltimore's Little Italy, and Baltimore Glimpses Revisited.

Sandler's lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 37th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. This event is cosponsored with The Johns Hopkins University Press and admission is free. For further information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
