Provident Bankshares Corp. agreed yesterday to buy Baltimore-based Sterling Bank and Trust Co., a small, privately held institution that specializes in personalized (and expensive) banking services for affluent customers.Provident -- itself often mentioned by banking analysts as a possible takeover candidate -- has $1.7 billion in assets and 41 branches through its main subsidiary, Provident Bank of Maryland. Sterling, an 8-year-old company, has $70 million in assets and three branches.Although the two companies would not disclose the purchase price, they said the letter of intent signed yesterday calls for Provident to pay 1.5 times Sterling's book value, which is about the current average price for bank mergers.

The 8-year-old boy from Brooklyn would wait for the "magnificent black man" to pull up in his blue Chrysler. The 29-year-old ballplayer would park his Chrysler at the gas station on Bedford Avenue, where the boy would meet him and walk with him one block to Ebbets Field.The man called the boy Arthur. The boy called the man Mr. Robinson. He always called him Mr. Robinson -- never Jackie, as the man had asked the fan to call him."I couldn't do that," Arthur says, 46 years later.In 1948, Arthur L. Silber began his hero worship of Jackie Robinson, the great Brooklyn Dodger who was the first black player in the major leagues.
