What people are saying about the book...
The story of a generous gift by a prominent Baltimore merchant
and investor, Johns Hopkins, for the establishment of the
university bearing his name is well documented and has been told
often and well, but perhaps never so fully and attractively than
by Mame Warren. Her volume portrays in words and photos the many
men and women who, over the last 125 years, have risen to the
bold vision of one person to give Hopkins its present prestige
and presence. The reach of knowledge created within its schools,
institutes, and laboratories extends truly across the globe.
Johns Hopkins: Knowledge for the World is a treasure.
Leafing through it is like enjoying the old family album--the
Hopkins family album. But what an extraordinary family! I am
proud to be a part of it.
Traditions can be invaluable to an institution when they are
traditions of excellence, are used as standards of performance,
and not permitted to stifle progress. Johns Hopkins has been
blessed with many, and they have been vital in making it the
place that it is. Mame Warren's book provides a stunning
photographic record of those traditions.
Despite having spent more than two decades at the University, I
continue to be amazed, indeed awed, by the extraordinarily
talented Hopkins faculty and its involvement with the key issues
of our time. In this magnificently illustrated book, Mame Warren
brings to life the diversity, nature and spirit of the Hopkins
family and provides historical depth and texture to a fascinating
present. The book is a gem.
I have loved spending hours with this book. It's a wonderful
blend of pictures and recollections that stimulates many, many
memories. I have given the book to numerous people with both
close and distant Hopkins connections.
This book evokes a sense of pride for all who have been
associated with The Johns Hopkins University. If you love
Hopkins, Mame Warren's powerful book will make you smile,
reminisce, and feel energized. Her writing is upbeat,
interesting, and reader friendly. And if the past is prologue,
Johns Hopkins: Knowledge for the World provides a good
framework for further actions.
New Book to Tell Hopkins Story
'I let the institution speak for itself,' says editor Mame Warren, whose upcoming book--a 'visual and verbal portrait' of Johns Hopkins--will commemorate the university's 125th anniversary.
