Abel Wolman House

Building Description:

The former residence of internationally-renowned sanitation engineering expert and esteemed Johns Hopkins Faculty Professor Abel Wolman, this building, designed by noted Baltimore architect Laurence Hall Fowler, was acquired by the University in 1993 thanks to a generous anonymous donation. Dr. Wolman's pioneering work, together with chemist Linn Enslow, on chlorination of drinking water earned him the title "the father of modern plumbing." The building is currently used by the Department of Housing and Dining Services as a conference facility.
