“Renaissance men” such as John H.B. Latrobe (1803-1891), son of architect Benjamin Latrobe, excelled in business, cultural and artistic activities. The younger Latrobe represented the B&O Railroad in legal matters; painted several paintings now housed at the Maryland Historical Society; designed the Latrobe Stove; authored a guide book to Baltimore; and helped establish the Maryland Historical Society, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and the nation of Liberia.
