"Hallowed Grounds:
A Tour of Ballparks Real and Imagined"

Charles Camp, state folklorist at the Maryland Arts Council and an academic with an eye for baseball's hidden truths, will present an illustrated talk called "Hallowed Grounds: A Tour of Ballparks Real and Imagined" at Johns Hopkins University on April 12.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the university's Office of Special Events. All programs in the series are held at noon in the Garrett Room of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library on the university's Homewood campus, at 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. Admission is free.

Dr. Camp is a grants officer for the Maryland State Arts Council and is responsible for the design and operation of granting programs for arts organizations and individual artists. He is also an instructor in the Johns Hopkins School of Continuing Studies, where he teaches a popular course called "Baseball and American Life: Close Readings and Close Calls." He examines the symbols and signs that permeate America's favorite game and furnishes interpretations that go unnoticed by the average sports fan.

For information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
