Born in England and educated in Germany, Benjamin Latrobe arrived in the United States in 1796 and soon was providing the new republic with canals, water systems and, most famously, buildings.
This lecture, presented by Dr. Jean Baker, Bennett-Harwood Professor of History Emerita, Goucher College, will examine Latrobe’s contributions to American society and the challenges that arose in his private and public life. Lecture is $50 per person and includes reception with wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Pre-registration preferred.
