Such programs are conducted by the Department of Anthropology, University of Maryland College Park; the Department of Sociology, Washington College; Historic London Town and Gardens; Historic St. Mary's City; Jefferson Patterson Historical Park and Museum; and Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
