Wedding photo of H.L. Mencken and Sara HaardtCollection Location: Goucher College

Collection Overview: "My home is and always will be in Baltimore," wrote H.L. Mencken in 1922. The following year he would meet Goucher College Professor of English Sara Haardt, and the two would fall in love and marry in Baltimore. They would spend 12 years together, in the city Mencken wrote had "superior charm," until Sara's untimely death in 1935. Through photographs and the letters of Sara and Henry, as Sara called him, this digital exhibit illuminates the relationship between these two writers and the Baltimore they loved.
