'Bud' Meyerhoff inducted into Hall of Fame

Harvey "Bud" Meyerhoff, chairman of Magna Holdings and president of the Home Builders Association of Maryland in 1961 and 1962, was one of four individuals inducted into the National Housing Hall of Fame earlier this month.

Mr. Meyerhoff was honored for "making lasting contributions to the housing industry."

The first chairman of the National Association of Home Builders' Research Center, Mr. Meyerhoff helped set standards for homebuilding materials and was an affordable housing advocate.

He is also credited with helping stabilize the price and supply of lumber in the early 1970s.

Harvey Meyerhoff is the son of Joseph Meyerhoff, who served as president of the National Association of Home Builders in 1946.

A plaque highlighting the accomplishments of Harvey Meyerhoff will hang in the National Housing Center in Washington.

Chicago Title moves to E. Fayette St.

Chicago Title Insurance Co., a fixture on St. Paul Street for 85 years, has moved to 19 E. Fayette St., formerly the Baltimore Federal Financial Building, which has been renamed the Chicago Title Insurance Building.

Chicago Title will occupy the third floor of the building, which was modeled after the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, Va., and built in 1950.

The company has a tenure of 111 years in Baltimore, first as Maryland Title and Trust Co., then as Title Guaranty Co. and SAFECO Title Insurance Corp. before becoming Chicago Title Insurance Co., according to John Obzud, the firm's vice president. "This building conveys our long history in Baltimore, yet it allows us to create a new future for our company. We feel totally at home here," he said.

Lincoln Green Associates of Columbia purchased 19 E. Fayette St. in 1986 and spent more than $500,000 on renovations.
