The Ghosts of Johns Hopkins with Antero Pietila
- Critic's Pick
The Johns Hopkins bookstore invites you to join us as we welcome Antero Pietela with his new book, The Ghosts of Johns Hopkins. Johns Hopkins destroyed his private papers so thoroughly that no credible biography exists of the Baltimore Quaker titan. One of America’s richest men and the largest single shareholder of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Hopkins was also one of the city’s defining developers. Antero Pietila weaves together a biography of the man with and his legacy.
