Women have been professionally practicing architecture in Maryland for over 80 years, yet little is known about those from earlier generations. AIA Baltimore and BAF Research of state architecture records have uncovered a number of women architects who practiced through the lean years of the World Wars and the Great Depression, designing buildings in Maryland and across the country.
Architect Jillian Storms will share the stories of these pioneering women and the buildings they designed.
