Correct response: What is National Geographic?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
National Geographic was first published in September 1888, shortly after the founding of the National Geographic Society. It did not become well-known for its photography until 1905 until Gilbert Grosvenor, needing to fill pages in the January 1905 issue, published 11 pages of photographs from Tibet, including one of a 600-year-old monastery on Minya Konka mountain.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $300 has been raised.)
