Who was Peter Angelos?

Peter George Angelos, born on July 4, 1929, was a prominent American trial lawyer and baseball executive hailing from Baltimore, Maryland.

Angelos was known as the majority owner of the Baltimore Orioles, a team in the American League of Major League Baseball.

Raised in a working-class neighborhood of Highlandtown, Angelos was the son of John and Frances Angelos, immigrants from Menetes, Karpathos, Greece.

He married Georgia Kousouris in 1966 and had two children, John and Louis. Angelos’ father, who primarily spoke Greek at home, owned a local tavern.

After graduating from Patterson Park High School, Angelos pursued higher education at the University of Baltimore, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree.

Subsequently, he attended the University of Baltimore School of Law, graduating in 1960 as the class valedictorian.

Angelos passed the bar in 1961 and opened an office specializing in handling product-liability cases for employees, almost always on a contingency basis.

In one of his cases, he represented some 8,700 steelworkers, shipyard workers, and manufacturers’ employees in a consolidated-action asbestos poisoning suit that was partially settled in 1992. Angelos’ take from that litigation alone has been estimated at $330 million.

He served a brief stint on the Baltimore City Council from 1959 to 1963 and ran for mayor on the city’s first interracial ticket in 1967, and lost.
