Admin/Biographical History John T. “Jack” Engeman was an American photographer. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1900, he graduated from the Naval Academy in 1924, and remained in the service for 17 years. At the outbreak of World War II, he returned to the Academy to teach engineering where he served for the duration of the war. After his time in the service, Engeman dedicated himself to photography, working on contract for the government, several airlines such as TWA and American, as well as the Baltimore City School system, among others. In his career, Engeman authored ten photo essay books, contributed photographs to others, and captured countless scenes of Baltimore and the world around him. His photographic and painted works were featured in a number of exhibitions, including several at the Peale Museum and the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery. Engeman remained an avid photographer until his death in 1984.
