Edmund G. Lind: Anglo-American Architect of Baltimore and the South
Edmund G. Lind, trained as an architect in his native London, was an excellent draftsman and held interesting theories about the relationship between color and music. He led in the effort to make architecture a profession in his adopted city. Lind's Peabody Institute Library rivals Latrobe's Cathedral as the finest interior in Baltimore, and his exceptional antebellum plantation complete, Coolmore, stands sentinel to a bygone age.
"Forgotten by all save a small cadre of specialists, Lind deserves a broader audience. Charles Belfoure's meticulous study reveals how much Lind contributed to shaping the landscape of greater Baltimore as it was becoming the greatest metropolis between Philadelphia and New Orleans, and offers a wealth of insights on the nature of architectural practice as it evolved during the nineteenth century." - Richard Longstreth, George Washington University
