Here’s today’s Final Jeopardy (in the category Reference Books) for Wednesday, December 6, 2017 (Season 34, Episode 63):
This manual resulted from a military engineer’s attendance at an unruly 1860s church meeting
(correct response beneath the contestants)
|Eric Dravland, a pediatrician from Lenoir, North Carolina
|Lindsay Norsworthy, a small business owner from Linthicum Heights, Maryland
|Kyle Becker, a research scientist from Nashville, Tennessee (2-day total: $30,400)
What is “Robert’s Rules of Order”?
Now in its 11th edition, Robert’s Rules of Order is the definitive manual when it comes to parliamentary procedure, and it used as parliamentary authority for many organizations around the United States and worldwide. The first version was published by U.S. Army Major Henry Martyn Robert in 1876. His interest in parliamentary procedure began in 1863 after being asked to preside over a church meeting, even though he did not feel he had the requisite knowledge to do so. Eventually, he realized that standardized national rules were necessary, as many people regionally had differing views as to what was proper procedure, and that this was hampering larger organizations.

Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! today? Tonight’s results are below!
Scores going into Final:
Eric $6,600 – $6,600 = $0 (What is the army field manual)
Lindsay $6,600 – 6,600 = $0 (What is the Military Code of Conduct)
Kyle $13,200 + $1 = $13,201 (3-day total: $43,601)
Note: Remember that since November 2014, ties for the win after Final Jeopardy are broken by a tiebreaker. I wrote an article back in 2016 that details why Kyle’s choice to bet for the win is a good one.
Also note: Eric receives $2,000 to Lindsay’s $1,000, in this case, due to his being ahead after the Jeopardy! round (see the scores below).
