      In celebration of President’s Day 2021, Historical Collections highlights the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s connections to the United States Presidency. With a founding date of 1807, UMB is just thirty-one years shy of sharing a birthyear with the United States and with a home in Baltimore a mere thirty-eight miles from Washington, D.C. it is not surprising to find ties to the U.S. Presidency. The blog post outlines Dr. Robley Dunglison, Dr. Henry Albert Parr, and Dr. James Julius Richardson, and their ties to the highest U.S. Office.
