WJZ-TV Channel 13 is owned by CBS Broadcasting, Inc. and is located in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1977, WJZ-TV News began its Electronic News Gathering (ENG) Library, recording newscasts and retaining raw footage on a daily basis. WJZ-TV often preempted ABC programming in favor of locally produced shows and syndicated content from Westinghouse's broadcasting division, Group W. The affiliation switch to CBS occurred in 1995, ending WJZ-TV's decades-long link with ABC. Westinghouse bought CBS in 1996, making WJZ-TV a CBS-owned and operated station.
This collection consists of videocassettes, films, negatives, photographs, and paper documentation. WJZ-TV gave, transferred, assigned, and delivered to MARMIA all of WJZ's right, title, and interest in and to the collection, including copyright in May 2017.

The Baetjer Word War II Collection consists of materials written and collected by 1st Lieutenant Howard Baejter II during his service as a fighter pilot during WWII. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1919, Baetjer attended Gilman School from 1933-1936 and graduated from Princeton University in 1942. During WWII, Baetjer served as a fighter pilot with the 309th Fighter Squadron of the 31st Fighter Group in the United States Army Air Force. This squadron was based in the Allied-occupied Italy and flew missions all across Europe and North Africa. Baetjer was twice shot down, and his journals document his time as a downed airman in Yugoslavia, as well as his 10 months as a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft III and two other camps. Throughout his service, Baetjer kept daily notes, which provide unique insights into the life of an American airman and POW.
This collection consists of diaries, journals, photographs, letters, scrapbooks, military forms, and medallions relating to Mr. Howard Baetjer II service as a fighter pilot with the Army Air Corps. The materials were donated to Gilman School by Betsy Baetjer in June 2023.
Professional dentistry as we know it today began in 1840 Baltimore when the Maryland General Assembly approved a charter for the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, the first dental school in the world. Along with the founding of the dental school began a museum collection, initially intended for housing natural history specimens as educational tools for its students, but quickly became the repository for many of American dentistry’s important artifacts and records. The Baltimore College of Dental Surgery collection was given on permanent loan to the museum by the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
The National Museum of Dentistry was established in 1996 at the site of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry’s first dental school building located next to historic Davidge Hall on the corner of South Greene and Lombard Streets in Baltimore City. Containing over 50,000 objects and archival records with two floors of exhibitions, the National Museum of Dentistry is the preeminent cultural repository for the history of the dental profession.
This collection consists of branch documents, newspaper clippings, and photographs referencing branch programs, events, and projects starting in 1964.View Collection
