Welcome Little Stranger: Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Family in Early Maryland

Location: Homewood Museum
Dates: January 17–March 30, 2008



Curated by students in museums and society’s annual Curating Homewood course, this exhibition explored the practices surrounding pregnancy and childbirth among families like the Carrolls of Homewood. Students researched the historical framework of the show, selected objects that would elucidate its themes, and organized the installation. The course and exhibition were generously sponsored by the late Anne Merrick Pinkard.
