The Ranums' Panat Times
Orest Ranum is professor emeritus of history at the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland.
Orest's pages consist primarily of book reviews, but he also provides a few unpublished articles and some syllabi, plus tributes to late friends. In addition, visiting historians have agreed to have papers hosted on our site.
Orest's half of the site is called: "Orest Ranum's Panat Times"
Patricia M. Ranum is an independent scholar who spends three-quarters of the year in Baltimore, Maryland, and three months in our hill village, Panat.
Patricia's pages consist primarily of "Musings" on musicological subjects, principally about composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), but also about word-music relations in French vernacular and Latin song.
Patricia's half of the site is called: "Patricia Ranum's Musicological Musings"
