When Dr. Charles Brown first looked into taking the athletic director job at UMBC in 1989, the Brooklyn, N.Y., native wasn't real savvy about the school. "I thought it was a military base when I showed up," he said with a chuckle. "It said UMBC. I didn't know what it was. I lived near USMA, the U.S. Military Academy [at West Point] when I lived in New York. " Now, after 24 years at the school, he's retiring as the longest-tenured Division I athletic director in Maryland history and the driving force behind UMBC's greatly enhanced profile in both intercollegiate and club sports.

When Kathy Zerrlaut arrived at UMBC in 1973, the women's teams didn't play in the brand new UMBC Fieldhouse, now RAC Arena, and UMBC didn't even have a stadium. The new coach's volleyball team played in the old gym, and her lacrosse team played on a field in front of the library. As Zerrlaut prepares to retire at the end of this month after 41 years as a coach and administrator at UMBC, including 24 as senior women's administrator, she has been a champion both for women's sports and for Retrievers athletics as a whole, playing a key role in the program's development.

A doctor's appointment brought Helen Jones out of her Allendale house earlier than usual Tuesday morning. While she waited on the porch for her ride, a man came out of a house across the street, got into a green car and drove away. "Then a little boy came out and looked around," Jones said. "I said, 'Wait a minute. I wonder if it was that little boy,' " she said, referring to 8-year-old Darrick Charles Brown, who was abducted Monday night, just a few blocks from Jones' house. A man in the distance scared the little boy back into the house, Jones said, but he came back out a short time later, just after 7 a.m., and began walking toward her. "When I saw the little boy, and I saw the green car, I said 'Wait a minute,'" said Jones, who realized that the little boy approaching was the one who had been kidnapped.

He was best known for his songs "Driftin' Blues" and "Merry Christmas Baby."Brown's gentle, nuanced approach fell out of favor with the rock 'n' roll explosion of the mid-1950s, though he had a hit in 1961 with "Please Come Home for Christmas."

Yesterday, Dr. Charles Brown - now the longest-tenured college AD in Maryland - signed a contract extension that will keep him at UMBC through 2011. "Four more years is about as much as I can go," Brown, 62, said. "May they be as enjoyable as my first 18 here." During that stretch, UMBC has gained a foothold in Division I athletics. In the past 10 years, the Retrievers have won 42 league championships and upgraded facilities for nearly all of the school's 19 varsity sports.
