Edwin Warfield was a lawyer, Governor of MD 1904-1908, and President of the Maryland Historical Society, 1913-1920. One of the scarpbooks in the collections contains material on the “Negro problem.”
Sidney Hollander was a Baltimore MD businessman, owner of the MD Pharmaceutical Co., who devoted most of his spare time and much of his retirement to volunteer work in the fields of social welfare and social reform. He served numerous private and public philanthropic organizations as an officer and board member and gained prominence on both the local and national welfare scenes. This large collection deals almost exclusively with his long career as a social activist and reformer, a career which spanned 1938-71 and which led Hollander to grapple with a wide variety of American social problems.
Collection consists of 9 family history research papers written for a course given at UMBC entitled "Perspectives on the Family". Four of the papers document the experiences of African Americans in the first half of the 20th century.
Collection contains five items (1972-78) relating to Mr. and Mrs. Hans Froelicher Jr.'s involvement in the early urban renewal and desegregation efforts in Baltimore (1940s-60s).

The collection consists of memorabilia related to the life of Harry Sythe Cummings. Cummings was one of the first two African American men to receive the Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Maryland. He was also the first African American member of the City Council of Baltimore City.
Personal papers, correspondence, and publications owned by Paul Samuel Henderson and Elizabeth Johnson Henderson. Paul Henderson was a staff photographer for the Afro-American newspaper until ca. 1945 after which he focused on his freelance photography business. He documented the Baltimore African American community and many civil rights related activities.
The collection consists of two boxes of miscellaneous print ephemera that documents African American civic, political, and religious life in twentieth-century Maryland. This material is organized thematically. The majority of items are publications from Baltimore churches, institutions, schools and colleges, and civic organizations and programs from the funerals of prominent African Americans, including Clarence M. Mitchell and Justice Thurgood Marshall. The political material primarily relates to the Democratic Party and African American politicians in Baltimore. Ms. Hines was plaintiff in the Enoch Pratt Free Library suit to integrate training classes in 1943.
The photograph collections listed below contain over 7500 images, many of which are related to the civil rights movement. The Paul Henderson Photograph Collection provides a particularly strong record of the civil rights movement and related subjects.
Paul Henderson was a photographer for the Afro-American Newspaper. His photographs document Baltimore’s African American community during the years 1940-1960. Civil rights related subjects that Henderson photographed include: the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); the Baltimore Urban League; civil rights demonstrations; Pennsylvania Avenue; Morgan State College (now Morgan State University) and more.

The Maryland Historical Society’s collection of more than 1000 oral histories is particularly strong on the civil rights movement and related topics. There are a few individual projects or series that focus specifically on the civil rights movement such as the McKeldin-Jackson Project. Some of these projects are unprocessed; special collections staff hope to have them available for public use soon. There are also many interviews that discuss various aspects of the civil rights movement, segregation, and related topics that are part of projects not specifically focusing on the civil right movement. Links provided below will take you to the specific project page containing inventories of interviews, project descriptions, and other resources.
This project consists of 92 oral histories that examine the civil rights era by focusing on the roles played by civil rights pioneer and Baltimore NAACP President Lillie May Jackson and Governor Theodore R. McKeldin. Follow the link above to view a list of the interviewees with summaries, a project description, and other resources.
