First Women of the University of Maryland, Baltimore

In March 2020, before UMB entered into mandatory telework due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the HSHSL installed an exhibit called First Women of the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

This blog post recreates the exhibit’s literature and photographs. Continue reading
