Laurence Hall Fowler Study Room

The Laurence Hall Fowler Study Room houses an extensive collection of drawings and other artifacts associated with the 20th-century Baltimore architect and book collector, Laurence Hall Fowler (1876–1971), who designed additions to Evergreen House under commissions from the Garrett family. Upon closing his architectural office in 1945, these presentation renderings, elevations, floor plans, and other related materials were added to the Garrett Library. Representing a rare and nearly complete record of Fowler’s illustrious career, these plans, photographs, and documents now serve as a valuable resource for the study of Baltimore’s evolving cityscape over the first half of the 20th century. They also indicate the extent to which Fowler’s world-class collection of Renaissance to 19th-century architectural library informed his work. 

Portions of the Laurence Hall Fowler Papers are accessible using the on-line database, Laurence Hall Fowler’s Lost Baltimore. The Fowler Study Room is open by appointment only. Please direct all inquiries to:
