Each week that we meet we will focus on a different time during the 1900s in Baltimore. In the first session we will learn about the time that spans the earliest days of the century through and including the Roaring 20s. In the second session we will learn about The Golden Age of Radio and a take a quick survey of the 1930s during The Great Depression. In the third session we will discuss Baltimore during the War Years. In the fourth and final session we will learn about Baltimore during the mid-century.

Facilitator: Jack Burkert is a Baltimore native who, in retirement, has used his energy and interest in all things Baltimore to create a number of educational programs. Jack also works part time as an educator at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. A 1969 graduate of the University of Maryland, Jack graduated with honors with a degree in history and education. His working life, some 40+ years, was spent in various educator roles, beginning with five years in the Baltimore City School system, later at the Pennsylvania State University, through private employers in Washington and New York City, and until his retirement a few years ago, in his own consulting firm. Returning to his home town, Jack’s interest in history led to a number of programs and information about Baltimore that inform and entertain both adults and young people. Jack has made a specialty of adding content and background to his work through research into the history of Baltimore, its port, businesses, people and immigration.
