With the enrollment of its first students in September of 1852, Loyola College, a small liberal arts college, began its long, successful association with the people and city of Baltimore. Loyola's original aims were to provide "a sure means of securing good and useful citizens" and to offer" an important aid in the perpetuation of our free institutions.
The audience addressed in this work is much wider than Loyola's alumni and professional educators. Descriptions of the violence of the Know-Nothings, the divisions among Marylanders over the Civil War, Baltimore's postwar lassitude, the effect that World War I and II had on the development of the region, and the Baltimore renaissance are included because they had an effect on Loyola or vice versa.
