As you might (or might not) know, I was the President of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, and one of the committees we had was called the "Dead Architects Society" named after the movie of a similar name.
As a member of this committee, a number of us selected architects from the early 20th century on whom to do a deep dive and I selected Palmer & Lamdin as mine. The result has been this website.
On Friday, October 5 at noon, I will be giving a presentation on the occasion of the beginning of Arch-tober, the celebration of architecture
week month. Here's the description:
Palmer & Lamdin, an architectural firm working mainly from the 1920’s to the 1940’s, designed some of the most interesting residences in Baltimore, characterized as “classical, with a twist.” Edward Palmer was one of the original architects for the Roland Park Company, but in 1917, went out on his own, acquired a partner, William Lamdin, and proceeded to design more than 300 properties in Baltimore, Delaware, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Meg Fairfax Fielding, a past president of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, is presenting. She is doing a deep dive on Palmer & Lamdin for the Dead Architects Society and writes the blog Palmer and Lamdin Architects. The program is hosted on Zoom.
