Sarah D. Elias (BA, ’57) has written her second book, Provident Hospital: A Chronology of the Baltimore Hospital 1894-1986. Elias describes it as the story of “the efforts of the remarkable health professionals and community support. Its history is part of the national health picture for African-Americans, their institutions and group cohesion. Their efforts allowed them a modicum of dignity under the circumstances. They were motivated by desire to help themselves with limited resources.”
Elais’ first book was Recalling Longview: An Account of the Longview Texas Riot, July 11, 1919. A retired teacher and former instructor at Coppin State University, she was also a lecturer and academic advisor at Morgan State University. Along with her BA from Roosevelt, she also has a Masters degree from Morgan State University in history and a Masters in education from Johns Hopkins University.
