Alumna Fannie Angelos, LL.B. ’51, died April 9 at Johns Hopkins Hospital from complications of myelodysplastic syndrome, The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday. She was 88.
Angelos practiced law in the Law Offices of Peter G. Angelos, her brother, also a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law. She continued to practice up until her death, The Sun reported.
The law school’s Baltimore Scholars program was renamed in 2013 in honor of Fannie Angelos. The Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence, a partnership between the UB School of Law and Maryland’s historically black colleges and universities, aims to enhance diversity in legal education and in the legal profession.
“Fannie Angelos was a trailblazer for the thousands of women who have attended the University of Baltimore School of Law in the years since she graduated,” said Dean Ronald Weich. “She was deeply committed to UB and its students until the very end of her remarkable life.”
