Biographical / Historical

This collection of oral histories with employees of the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company was part of a corporate history project undertaken to supplement and update Consolidated of Baltimore, 1916-1950, A History of Baltimore Gas, Electric Light, and Power Company, a history of the company published in 1950. John T. King III, who at the time was the Executive Assistant to the Chairman of the Board began working on a history of the company and decided that a collection of interviews with company employees would be beneficial to the project. The book, A History of the Baltimore Gas & Electric Company, 1816-1987, was eventually published in 1989.
