    images/1x1.gif "The 1972 Balticon broke the string of using the Lord Baltimore by going to a hotel near Johns Hopkins Hospital which was constructed entirely of poured concrete. It presumably gave us a better deal -- I don't recall -- but nobody liked it much and no one felt comfortable going outside to eat.
    images/1x1.gif The 1971 to 1974 Balticons all had banquets with the GoH speech at them, all held 2 or 3 miles from the hotel up on University Parkway. Surprising as it might seem now, people went."
