John T. “Jack” Engeman was an American photographer. Born in Brooklyn, New York in
1900, he graduated from the Naval Academy in 1924, and remained in the service for
17 years. At the outbreak of World War II, he returned to the Academy to teach engineering
where he served for the duration of the war. After his time in the service, Engeman
dedicated himself to photography, working on contract for the government, several
airlines such as TWA and American, as well as the Baltimore City School system, among
others. In his career, Engeman authored 12 photo essay books, and captured countless
scenes of Baltimore and the world around him. His photographic and painted works were
featured in a number of exhibitions, including several at the Peale Museum and the
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery. Engeman remained an avid photographer until his death
Donated by Alice Engeman in two gifts: P86-13, P89-14.
It is unknown if any arrangement was undertaken at the time of accessioning (P86-13,
P89-14); a detailed inventory was created at this time. In 2014, the collection was
rehoused and the folder list was created by student assistant Kathleen Foster under
the supervision of Special Collections Librarian Susan Graham.
