"Virginia-born Meredith Janvier (1872-1936), after graduating in law from the University of Maryland, practised in a Baltimore firm for thirteen years, whereupon he abandoned law to become a photographer.

Mencken. 'In these recollections my endeavor has been to reconstruct the past and bring to mind in some degree, to persons about my own age, a mementary vision of the life and manners in Baltimore as they were during the score of years from 1880 to 1900.'"
