History students’ love letters to Baltimore buildings get published

Five undergraduate students from Associate Professor Elizabeth Nix‘s History of Baltimore class (HIST 382) have had their work published in the Keystone, the bi-weekly newsletter of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation (BAF). The pieces were submitted for BAF’s “Love Letters to Baltimore Buildings” feature.

“I am very proud that they are writing for an authentic audience,” said Nix. “And so is the Baltimore Architectural Foundation. One of their staff members sent me a thank-you note for including this assignment in my class for the second year.”

Congratulations to Bataul Alkhateeb, Drew Mazurek, Benjamin ThorntonAshley Tippie, and Ashley Tunstall. Click below to read each of their letters.
