The Wiley H. Bates Heritage Park
In 1931, Wiley Bates donated $500 towards the purchse of land on
which to build the first high school for African American students in
Annapolis. By 1981, the building was abandoned. Today, the revitalized
site is home to a new Senior Center, a Boys & Girls Club, and a fitting
memorial to Bates. Nancy Breslau Lewis reports.

Annapolis Insiders: Dr. Robert G. Graw, Jr.
As a child in California, Dr. Robert “Bob” Graw wanted to grow
up to be just like his pediatrician. Today, Dr. Graw, founder of
Nighttime Pediatrics and the Pediatric Group, is not only a pillar
of the community, but he’s created a practice that allows other pediatricians
to become equally cherished as well. Margot Mohsberg
interviews a local legend.

Annapolis History: Annapolis National Cemetery
That cemetery at the corner of West Street and Taylor Avenue is
actually one of the first National War Cemeteries designated by
Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. Though no major battles
were fought here, the site was close to hospitals and other sites
of Union troop activity, making it ideal as a home for the fallen
soldiers of the Civil War.
