As we previously noted, Johns Hopkins University undergraduates will be feted this year by Pixar president Ed Catmull (hence this very fun commencement speaker announcement). But all of Hopkins’s other schools and departments, including the Carey Business School, have their own commencement exercises–which means they get their own speakers, too.

Someone’s Trolling T. Rowe Price…


vanguard at-cost cafe

If you were downtown earlier this week, you may have noticed a bright red food truck. Don’t get your hopes up: It’s not the mobile taco truck you’ve been dreaming of. Instead, it was an elaborate promotional campaign by mutual fund company Vanguard. And it hardly seems like a coincidence that it was parked a short walk away from T. Rowe Price’s headquarters.

Modern Townhouse of Architectural Note, For Sale (Or Rent) In Federal Hill




Hot House: 132 E. Montgomery Street, Federal Hill, Baltimore, 21230

Brick townhouse, circa 1875, completely modernized 2005, with exterior glass wall and balconies overlooking street and harbor. 3,588 sq. ft. with three bedrooms, four baths over three levels. Custom gourmet kitchen with extensive built-ins, office with built-ins, gas fireplace, master suite with dressing room and steam shower, full intercom and camera security system, two car garage, large rooftop terrace, full harbor views: $1,400,000. Also available for rent @ $4,500/mo.

What:  In 2001, Cristina Wasiak was named the first woman CFO of  T. Rowe Price. In 2003, she left the position for unspecified reasons, and hired well-known architect Rebecca Swanston to turn three Federal Hill properties, including an auto body shop, into a sleek city house. The entrance on E. Montgomery takes you right upstairs. The main living area is on the second floor to maximize light and harbor views – this house is among the very few with a full-on Inner Harbor vista.  It’s a show-stopping space, with sliding glass panels, metal balconies and gleaming hardwood floors — extensively photographed in Creating the Inspired House by John Connell. The kitchen is beautifully designed and perfect for entertaining, with a mahogany breakfast bar rising over granite countertops, top grade appliances and walls of high-end cabinetry that could house a collection of…whatever. Open floor plan here, with a gas fireplace and lots of room for a big cozy sofa.  Upstairs is a chic master bedroom suite as well as an entrance to the roof deck – furnished, this deck would truly be an outdoor living room. It’s big and inviting and comes with a wide-arm, expanding umbrella for shade in the heat of the day. The top floor also offers access to the  Federal style townhouse, one of the original three properties,  seamlessly joined, which offers a separate living and office area with entrance onto William Street.


Where: This house virtually owns the corner of E. Montgomery and William Streets, a highly desirable Federal Hill location. Walk two blocks east and you’re standing at the summit of Federal Hill Park. A block west, and you are sitting outside at Regi’s, a prime-viewing platform for all the Federal Hill action. The Cross Street market with Nick’s Seafood, and all Federal Hill bars, galleries and shops are within a few blocks. Driving south on Light Street, pass the Science Center and take a left onto E. Montgomery Street. Number 132 is on the left.

T. Rowe Price Finance Lab at Towson University

I just got back from a wedding, and so I’m in the mood to celebrate unions of all kind. The new partnership between T. Rowe Price and Towson University may be a bit less romantic than what I witnessed up in New Hampshire, but it’s still an exciting example of how Baltimore’s education and business communities can benefit from one another in unexpected ways.
