Plenty to do, if you know where to look
As an undergrad, Will Kirk, A&S '99, was never at a
loss for things to do. He worked five jobs, studied full
time at Hopkins, and took classes at Maryland Institute,
College of Art. "I always saw Baltimore as more of a
college town than a lot of people," says Kirk, the Hopkins
photographer who shot "It Takes a
Village — Charles Village — to Make a College
Town." "I can understand why kids might think Baltimore
doesn't have as much to do as New York, but I've liked
Baltimore ever since I've been here." Kirk's work has also
been published in The Baltimore Sun, New York
Newsday, and The New York Daily News.
So you think you know local politics?
Michael Anft had long wondered about the prevalence of
political pundits in news coverage. "I never put much stock
in what these guys say," says Anft, who once covered city
government for Baltimore City Paper. "What makes these guys
experts?" But when he interviewed Matthew Crenson for "The Accidental Pundit," he came to
appreciate Crenson's active mind and scholarly research.
Says Anft, "He's got a good sense of the history of the
political issues he's discussing." Anft — who
contributes regularly to the Chronicle of Philanthropy,
Hopkins Medicine, PressBox, and The Washington
Post — lives in Towson with his family.
