Baltimore in the 1950's: A Mid-Century look at: People, Places, and Priorities

  • Dnipro Ukranian Club 3101 O Donnell Street Baltimore, MD, 21224 United States (map)

A decade of dramatic change: the 1950’s in Baltimore largely reflected the changes occurring nationwide, many of them with a local aspect. But more than the changing national scene, Baltimore rebuilt, restored, revised and occasionally endured a series of changes that forever changed the fabric of the city. This unexpectedly dynamic decade made lasting, fundamental changes to the way people lived, where they lived, how they moved in and around their environment and to many of the places they gained employment.


Our speaker is Jack Burkert from the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Jack has a passion for local history and an extensive career in education. If you missed his talk last year on Baltimore in the Roaring 20's seek him out. You will not be disappointed.

Location is the Dnipro Ukranian Club at 3101 O'Donnell Street, Baltimore, MD 21224
