Eric Daniel, a URSP student in the joint degree program in Law and Community Planning, was recently named the co-winner of the Joseph L. Arnold Prize for Outstanding Writing on Baltimore History (http://www.historicbaltimore.org/program/essayprize.htm
). Eric’s paper is about a 1920s Maryland case on the use of restrictive covenants in Ashburton, a suburb in Northwest Baltimore. The paper uses the case, Northwest Real Estate Company v. Serio, as a backdrop for looking into suburbanization in Baltimore, Italian Immigration, and housing discrimination in that era.
Eric presented a lecture about the issues addressed in the paper on Thursday, March 15, at one of the Baltimore City Historical Society's "Baltimore History Evenings" at the Village Learning Place in Charles Village.
