takes the Trivia Quiz

May 07, 1991

GLIMPSES' "Trivia Quiz" buff Wayne Schaumburg has won (or been runner-up in) so many of our quizzes over the years that this year we decided to head him off at the pass. So we asked him to write the questions. (We don't know who the winner will be this year, but it won't be Schaumburg.)

You know the rules by now, this being the 16th annual test of our readers' knowledge of Baltimore people, places and events. The first entry mailed with the most correct answers wins. Entries not mailed are ineligible. Employees of The Baltimore Sun may not enter. Void in Baghdad.

The winner gets to hold the title "Baltimore Glimpses Trivia Champion of 1991" and receives a gorgeous certificate that will look great on his or her trophy wall.
