Gerald Allen Elkins, a retired Department of Planning map maker and graphic artist who detailed Baltimore's transformation for more than four decades, died of cancer Nov. 28 at his Ocean Pines home. The former Overlea resident was 65. "What struck me most about Gerry, besides his considerable graphic design talent, was his positive attitude and consistency in being a real team player," said Baltimore City Planning Director Thomas J. Stosur. "He would not only create the striking maps and graphics, but he would mount them professionally, advise on setup and display, transport the maps and supplies to meetings, set up the room, help out at the meeting, break down the room after the meeting, then go drinking with the rest of the team afterward!"

Lyndon Johnson called him "Bull," an apt nickname for Wilson Homer Elkins. He picked up the moniker as a star athlete at the University of Texas, and when he came to College Park in 1954 to succeed Harry Clifton "Curley" Byrd as president of the University of Maryland, Dr. Elkins needed a bull's strength and single-mindedness.The university's academic accreditation was threatened because Byrd had emphasized athletics over scholarship. Restoring a healthy balance was one of football star Elkins' first moves.

Alan and Lois Elkin's business has a big anniversary coming up next year: 50. Cockeysville-based Advance Business Systems specializes in document-related work — selling equipment such as printers and copiers, servicing it and providing networking support. The IT focus is just one of the differences between now and 1964, when copying could mean mimeograph. The company's grown, too, and now employs more than 170 people. What hasn't changed: The husband-and-wife team still hands out their home number to customers.

What really works for New York choreographer Doug Elkins, whose company opened a weekend of appearances at Towson State University's Stephens Hall last night, is how he manages to loot a variety of dance styles to create his unique off-centered and humorous dances.But what makes this choreographer successful is also the same thing that undermines his works. Mr. Elkins is a stickler for detail, and his penchant for physically describing every possible stylistic variation can sometimes lead him dramatically off the deep end.The highlight of the evening was the closing work, "The Patrooka Variations," which demonstrated just how cleverly Mr. Elkins can fasten disparate movements together and make them look logically inevitable.
