Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
In 1934, Anne Morrow Lindbergh received the Hubbard Medal for her work as a radio operator and co-pilot to her husband on a pair of flights in 1931 and 1933, a trek that saw them explore five continents.
Prior to the US entry into World War II, though, Anne and her husband fell out of favor with many Americans, as Charles was seen as a pacifist Nazi sympathizer, as part of the non-interventionist group known as “America First”. Many of his speeches given under that “America First” banner before America entered World War II were regarded as anti-Semitic.
The timing of Jeopardy! talking about someone associated with the previous “America First” group? Perfect.
