Goucher Virtual Authors Series: Jean Harvey Baker '61

Building America: The Life of Benjamin Henry Latrobe tells the story of one of America’s greatest architects and engineers. To the extent that we build buildings and then they shape us, given Latrobe’s  broad practice, he influenced every aspect of life in early America – from its worship and governance to its education and domesticity. Jean Baker ’61 retired from teaching history at Goucher College as the Bennett-Harwood professor of history and from the college’s Prison Education Program in 2013. Forthcoming this fall is a book of essays on Maryland during the Civil War that she coedited along with Charles Mitchell. Moderating the discussion is Marlene Trestman ‘78, lawyer and the author of Fair Labor Lawyer: The Remarkable Life of New Deal Attorney and Supreme Court Advocate Bessie Margolin. Eastern Time Zone.
