3-25-11: Maryland, Eh?

March 25, 2011 at 8:05 am Leave a comment

In 1620, 16 years before he sent his son Leonard Calvert sailing up the Potomac, Lord Baltimore bought land in Newfoundland. On Maryland Day, we talk to Memorial University of Newfoundland professor emeritus Dr. James Tuck about the Calverts’ Canadian colony of Avalon.

Tomorrow at 1 p.m., Dr. Tuck will give the keynote address at the Maryland Day celebration in Historic St. Mary’s City. On Sunday, he’ll give a full lecture: The Ferryland Maryland Connection: The Calverts and the Settlement of Newfoundland.”

In addition to the observations at Historic St. Mary’s City, the Four Rivers Heritage area in Anne Arundel (comprising Annapolis, Lond Town and South County) has scheduled events and tours at historical, cultural and natural resources sites.  Details and maps here.
