Douglas L. Frost

MICAIn 1826, visionary leader John H. B. Latrobe founded the Maryland Institute for the Promotion of the Mechanic Arts to help meet pressing skilled labor demands of the Industrial Revolution and to provide a cultural center featuring scientific and fine arts exhibitions and Lyceum lectures for Baltimore, the nation's fastest growing urban center at that time. Making History/Making Art: MICA chronicles the people, the events and the turning points in the evolution of this new experiment in education into a premiere college of art internationally and an invaluable community and cultural resource known today simply as MICA.

A graduate of Trinity College (CT), Doug Frost joined the senior administration of Maryland Institute College of Art in 1966 after obtaining an MA in HIstory from Yale. When he became Vice President for Development, Emeritus in 2006, he began researching and writing the College's history.

Presented in partnership with the Maryland Historical Society.
