Berlin '70, Books His Dream Job

Published: Jan 4, 2012

After spending most of his career working in tech management in busy New York, Eduard Berlin ’70, history, is returning to Baltimore to pursue a different path entirely — a life of books.

“We’ve always been a book family,” said Berlin, who along with his wife Ann took ownership of Baltimore’s Ivy Bookshop — an independent shop focusing on literary works and author events — at the start of the year.

“We’re really, really grateful that (bookstore founder) Darielle (Linehan) has the confidence in us to take this on,” said Berlin, noting that his wife has worked in publishing for 30 years. “We’re very, very excited.”

A member of UMBC’s first graduating class, Berlin is a member of the UMBC Alumni Association Board of Directors and plans to get more involved with UMBC upon his return to Baltimore, he said.
