Anson, Melanie. Olmsted's Sudbrook: The Making of a Community. Baltimore, MD: Sudbrook Park, Inc., 1997.
Annotations / Notes: Anson chronicles the history of Baltimore County's Sudbrook Park, a significant example of a residential community planned by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted's "General Plan for Sudbrook" in 1889 epitomized the suburban ideal which he championed, with its separation from the city, yet link for commuting via the nearby Western Maryland Railway line; spacious lots and set backs for cottage-style houses; shared common spaces and amenities; and romantic, naturalistic setting. Anson traces the evolution of the development of Sudbrook, as well as the nature of community social life from the 1890s to the present.

Arnold, Joseph L. The New Deal in the Suburbs: A History of the Greenbelt Town Program, 1935-1954. Columbus: Ohio State University Press, 1971.
Annotations / Notes: Considering the variety of Maryland's various planned communities - Columbia, Bowie, Greenbelt and Roland Park - it is important to appreciate how each was distinctive. At its conception, Greenbelt, along with several other communities planned and built by Rexford Guy Tugwell's Resettlement Administration, represented the social experimentation associated with New Deal. According to the author: "the greenbelt towns were built to demonstrate that urban expansion by the construction of complete new towns would provide superior safety, convenience, beauty, and a deep sense of community spirit - all at a new low cost. These new suburban towns would therefore provide a superior environment for families heretofore condemned to live in urban slums. New towns would stop urban decay and end economic segregation of the suburbs." (p. xii) What was radical was the comprehensive scope of the enterprise, the creation of co-operative businesses to serve the community, and the fact that the federal government maintained ownership. This study ends with the implementation of Public Law 65 (1949) which transferred ownership of most of the houses to a private co-operative.
