Beirne, Francis F. "The Four Merchants." In The Amiable Baltimoreans. New York, 1951; reprint, Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1984.

Beirne, Francis F. The Amiable Balimoreans. New York: Dutton and Company, 1951.
Annotations / Notes: For many years the standard popular volume on Baltimore social history, though not intended to be comprehensive, Beirne's book provides a series of sketches of important events, personalities, and cultural traits that distinguish the city. Representative chapters tell the stories of the origins and importance of the port and the B&O Railroad; the nineteenth-century merchants who set the tone for economic and social life; the role of Germans, Jews, and African Americans in the city's social mix; and literary and cultural achievements. Its generally affirmative tone, conveyed by the title, is echoed in the book's concluding observation that "there will always be a Baltimore full of amiable people, going its leisurely and contented way."

Bentley, Amy. "Wages of War: The Shifting Landscape of Race and Gender in World War II Baltimore." Maryland Historical Magazine 88 (Winter 1993): 420-43.
Annotations / Notes: Bentley examines the impact of the dramatic changes occasioned by World War II-era production in Baltimore. In terms of race, while Jim Crow patterns prevailed in various arenas, most notably housing, new employment opportunities eventually became available as well, especially in such critical industries as steel and other war-related industries. Similarly, the role of women in employment expanded even as traditional roles were reaffirmed. Bentley argues that new wartime values challenged conventional stereotypes regarding race and gender and provided the basis for eventual changes.

Bernard, Richard M. "A Portrait of Baltimore in 1800: Economic and Occupational Patterns in an Early American City." Maryland Historical Magazine 69 (Winter 1974): 341-60.
Annotations / Notes: This study looks at the social structure and physical location of Baltimore's population during its boom period. The author found Baltimore's rich and poor isolated from each other and the middle class decentralized. Many Baltimoreans worked near their home, while this allowed for the intermixing of people of different occupations, it kept different communities isolated from each other.
