From 1876 almost until his death in 1901, pre-eminent American historian Herbert Baxter was connected with the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, being in turn a fellow, an associate in history (18781883), an associate professor (18831891) and after 1891 professor of American and institutional history. Adams is notable for bringing the study of history into the social sciences. In 1884, he was one of the founders of the American Historical Association, of which he was secretary until 1900. In 1882 he founded the Johns Hopkins University Studies in Historical and Political Science, and at the time of his death some forty volumes had been issued under his editorship.
