The History of Modern Baltimore Lives Here!

The Special Collections & Archives at the University of Baltimore strives to make our collections accessible to members of the UB community, the Baltimore area, and the general public.

This site provides access to selected materials from our collections and makes it possible for users to interact with our curated digital exhibits.

Our archival collections document twentieth century Baltimore and the surrounding region. These digital collections and exhibits highlight items from a number of our archival collections, and focus on themes such as: Baltimore neighborhoods, urban planning and architecture, economic development, Baltimore area nonprofits, and community organizing, particularly related to the issues of education, housing, and highway construction.
