History of Homewood Lecture at Hopkins

Historian and landscape architect M. Edward Shull will give a lecture, "Homewood: A New World Arcadia," at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

Shull's slide presentation will be followed by a cross-campus walk to Homewood House Museum for a tour of Building Homewood: Vision for a Villa, an exhibition of tools, design books, maps, and images of Baltimore villas intended to reveal how the house was built, used, and integrated into its landscape. The exhibit celebrates the 200th anniversary of Homewood House and the 100th anniversary of The Johns Hopkins University's presence on the Homewood campus. A dessert reception will follow the tour.

M. Edward Shull is a landscape historian and architect specializing in small-scale and historical landscape design and restoration. He serves on a number of boards and committees, including the American Society of Landscape Architects' Historic Preservation, International Practice, and Recreation and Parks committees. Shull is a founding member of the board of directors of the Southern Garden History Society, and he is president emeritus of the Friends of Maryland's Olmstead Parks and Landscapes.

Shull'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.
