With its scholar's library, lecture series, academy of music, and art gallery, the Peabody had a profound influence on the development of the city of Baltimore. More importantly, is set the standard for improving the cultural life of the nation and served as the model for the subsequent efforts of the Fricks, the Morgans, and the Carnegies. No other institution in the country could rival the scope and magnitude of the one founded by George Peabody.
