"Old Ocean City," A Lecture at Hopkins

C. John Sullivan will give a talk, titled "Old Ocean City: The Journal and Photographs of Robert Craighead Walker, 1904-1916" on Wednesday, March 28, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.

This lecture is based on Sullivan's latest book published by the Johns Hopkins University Press. During his talk, he will show what Ocean City was like for visitors in the early 1900s as told through the words and photographs of the Walker family of Washington, D.C. To tell this story, Sullivan mixes his own commentary and explanatory captions with more than 100 of the Walker family photographs and excerpts from a daily journal, "My Vacation,' penned by Robert Walker.

Sullivan is Supervisor of Assessments for Harford County, Maryland. The author of numerous books and articles about the Chesapeake region, he is a widely recognized expert on decoys and has served as a consultant to the Maryland Historical Society, the Ward Museum of Waterfowl Art, and the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 35th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. This event is co-sponsored with the Johns Hopkins University Press and is free and open to the public. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516- 7157.
