VIDEO: Delmarva Today -> Linda Duyer speaks about her book, “‘Round the Pond, Georgetown of Salisbury, Maryland”
The Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury University recently uploaded a large inventory of backlogged videos, including a 2014 interview by Delmarva Today’s Don Rush with local historian, newspaper columnist, and author Honorable Linda Duyer.
We thank the Nabb Center for sharing the interview with our late friend and keeping alive the legacy of community history of the Delmarva and those who have made lasting contributions.
The Georgetown neighborhood of Salisbury, the focus of Ms. Duyer’s 2009 book, and its extant John Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church was the impetus for the February 1880 visit of Frederick Douglass to Wicomico County.
Thank you Don Rush of Delmarva Public Radio for recognizing our late friend Linda Duyer, who passed in November 2020.

Last year I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Don Rush, host of Delmarva Public Radio’s program Delmarva Today, about Frederick Douglass’ 1877 visit to Cambridge, Maryland.
My speaking with Don was due the relationship and recommendation of Eastern Shore community historian Linda Duyer, who first documented and introduced to the public information on the lost visit of Frederick Douglass in February 1880 to Salisbury, Maryland in Wicomico County. Don also spoke with Ms. Duyer last year.
Last month Rush interviewed Yale University professor David Blight about his new book and the time Douglass spent on the Eastern Shore.
