"Vanishing Ways of Life in Maryland"
Topic of Talk at Hopkins

John Sherwood, a journalist and editor, will give an illustrated lecture entitled "Vanishing Ways of Life in Maryland" at The Johns Hopkins University on April 26.

The talk 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 St. in Baltimore. Admission is free.

For more than forty years, John Sherwood worked as a feature writer for the Baltimore Sunpapers, the now-defunct Washington Star, the Miami Herald and the Journal Newspapers of Maryland and Virginia. Recently, he has been managing editor of Rags, The Magazine, an East Coast sailing magazine based in Annapolis.

In 1994, Sherwood wrote his first book, Maryland's Vanishing Lives, a compendium of the many crafts, occupations and skills which will soon disappear not only in Maryland but throughout the country. Illustrated with beautiful photographs by Edwin H. Remsberg, this collection is a testimonial to a disappearing world.

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