Answer

How did Clarence Moore, the “master of the hounds” at the Chevy Chase Club, meet his end?   ANSWER: B: He was a passenger on the Titanic. Fox hunting was one of the most popular activities at the Chevy Chase Club (now the Chevy Chase Country Club) in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Having traveled to England in search of more foxhounds, Moore was returning home on the Titanic when it sank on April 15, 1912.   Source: Montgomery County Historical Society

About This Blog

Education Matters will discuss the news and issues affecting both public and private schools in Montgomery County. We want to talk about what’s happening inside—and outside—the classroom, who’s making the grade and who isn’t.

Julie Rasicot is a former newspaper reporter and managing editor who’s been writing about education for 25 years. She’s a veteran PTA and classroom volunteer who’s the mother of two girls—an eighth-grader and a fifth-grader—attending MCPS schools. None of that seems to matter, though, when she’s struggling to help her kids with their math homework.
