Jack Harper Kelbaugh Jr.
John "Jack" Harper Kelbaugh Jr., considered a treasure of local historical knowledge, died earlier this week (Nov. 15, 2001) after suffering heart failure on a visit to some historic buildings with two former county executives.
The 65-year-old Annapolis man collapsed Thursday on a visit to a "village" of pre-Civil War buildings in Tracys Landing. At the wheel of their car was former county executive O. James Lighthizer of Crofton, who drove Mr. Kelbaugh to Anne Arundel Medical Center.
In the back seat of the car was former county executive Joe Alton of Annapolis Roads, who said Mr. Kelbaugh had recently asked to meet and talk about his life in politics.
"It is no understatement that I have never met anybody who knows more about our county history from the time the Lord created it until today than Jack Kelbaugh," Mr. Lighthizer said recently. The head of the Civil War Preservation Trust, he could not be reached for comment last night.
Mr. Kelbaugh was born Feb. 11, 1936 and raised in the then-rural village of Harmans in west county. He was a 10th generation descendant of Adam Shipley of Shipley's Choice and grew up hearing tales of local lore.
That created a thirst to explore the past, according to Wallis Y. Kelbaugh, his wife of 41 years. Mrs. Kelbaugh said one of her husband's proudest achievements was his research that helped put the Annapolis National Cemetery on the National Register of Historical Places.
Mr. Kelbaugh graduated from Arundel High School in 1954, then joined the Marines. He became a radar operator in the 3rd Marine Corps Air Wing, and was honorably discharged in 1956 after reaching the rank of sergeant.
In 1960, he graduated from Towson State College with a bachelor's degree in science education and took post graduate courses in physics at the University of Maryland.
He taught physics in Baltimore County schools. Later, he taught for 28 years in Anne Arundel County schools. He also received a master's degree in Russian language and literature from Georgetown University.
Mr. Kelbaugh's lectures and writings also won him the 2000 Marjorie Murray Bridgman award from the Anne Arundel County Preservation Trust.
He was a member of the Wesley Grove United Methodist Church in Harmans, the Potapskut Sailing Association, the Ann Arrundel Historical Society, the Odenton Heritage Society, the Shady Side Rural Heritage Society, the Anne Arundel Genealogical Society and the Annapolis Elks, Lodge 622.
In addition to Mrs. Kelbaugh, he is survived by three daughters, Grace Ridley of Arlington, Va., Julie Anne Kelbaugh and Louisa McMorrow, both of Annapolis; a sister, Elizabeth Westendorf of Linthicum; and two grandchildren.
A memorial will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Wesley Grove United Methodist Church, 1320 Dorsey Road, Hanover.
In lieu of flowers, send memorial contributions to the Ann Arrundell County Historical Society Publication Fund, P. O. Box 285, Linthicum, MD 21090.
Arrangements are by Singleton Funeral Home, 1 Second Ave. SW, Glen Burnie.
