Famous Marylanders have had streets, airports and libraries named for them. Hilda Mae Snoops has a ... crane. The port of Baltimore posthumously named one of the machines that lifts big metal containers on and off ships for Snoops during a dockside ceremony yesterday. The naming of the crane for the late, longtime companion of Comptroller and former Gov. William Donald Schaefer drew several state officials, including Schaefer, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and First Lady Kendel Ehrlich. "Hilda Mae was a big proponent of the port," Schaefer said after climbing onto a pier in the late-morning sunshine from the state tour boat where the ceremony was held.

Governor Schaefer and companion Hilda Mae Snoops are among those invited to a dinner at the British Embassy hosted by Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, during their four-day state visit to Washington later this month.

Quote of the day"I'm a tremendous fan of the folk-genre of painted screens and they are a marvelous art form for Baltimore, but they couldn't be more incorrect for a Georgian revival mansion. If Hilda Mae wants to live in a row house on Eastern Avenue she should go back to Eastern Avenue and stop living in the governor's mansion.") -- Stiles T. Colwill, a former curator with the Maryland Historical Society, reacting to Gov. William Donald Schaefer's friend Hilda Mae Snoops' desire to install painted screens at the governor's mansionToday8,10 a.m.: Senate convenes, State House.

Hilda Mae Snoops, the governor's friend, says she i Maryland's First Lady of Misunderstood."People say I'm unhappy," she declares.They do?"Yes," she says. "They say I need love."They do?"They do," she insists. "But that's not the case."Even if it isn't, I love it when she talks this way. In fact, I love it when anybody semiconscious in the State House (sometimes it's so tough to tell) talks this way.The governor and his lady friend are not like everybody else in politics. They've never learned how to hide their emotions.

When her children, Dorothy, Craig and Larry, walked in carrying signs that said, "This is Your Special Night, Hilda Mae," she finally realized that it was her party.
