Baltimore Black History

As a young man, William Adams worked as a "numbers runner," then owner of Little Willie's Tavern. Eventually he emerged as West Baltimore's leading businessman and a major investor in black-owned businesses. In 1935, Adams married Victorine Quille. Over the next forty years, they became important community leaders. Vicotrine played a key role organizing black voters in the 1940's, served as the first African-American woman on the Baltimore City Council, and mentored a generation of black women in Maryland politics.
