Scope and Contents
The publications document the founding and evolution of the Maryland Institute. Included are: charters, constitutions and by-laws, annual reports with departmental reports and membership, student, and award lists, exhibition catalogs, course catalogs, addresses from public and commencement programs, etc.
Most of the original documents are bound pamphlets, roughly 6 x 9 inches. Some are bound together in hard covers, and some have paper covers. Some are fragile.
MICA owns a number of the original documents, and these were scanned to PDF files for ease of access. The original documents and print-outs from the PDF files are filed together. Originals owned by the Enoch Pratt Free Library of Baltimore were also borrowed, scanned to PDF, output as hard copies, and are included with the MICA holdings.
The Maryland Institute College of Art was founded by John H.B. Latrobe and others as the Maryland Institute for the Promotion of the Mechanic Arts in 1825. This collection consists of publications from the early years of the Institute’s foundingation and evolution.
