Evergreen Museum and Library

On June 27, 2017, I attended a lunch and lecture about the Evergreen Museum and Library at the Johns Hopkins Club.

The event was in honor of the recent publication of the book Evergreen: The Garrett Family, Collectors and Connoisseurs. It was published by Johns Hopkins University Press.

The speaker explained that a museum’s purpose is to “grow and evolve” and sometimes this means selling current collections.

The museum was established in 1858.

Previously, it was one of the most prestigious residences outside the city limits of Baltimore.

It is located between Loyola University and Notre Dame University of Maryland.

Interestingly, Evergreen was the destination of the Jazz Age in Baltimore and its collections were used as the backdrop for diplomatic discussions during WWII.
