Queen Elizabeth II, Mr. Sean Butcher, and Dr. Carmen Acevedo Butcher, London, September 1990

The Lucy Contest Winners

We have a winner! Even two! The contest entries poured in. Thanks to all who participated so intelligently. Your entries went into my Sutton Hoo helmet, and these winners' names were drawn out on the 31st of August: Beth Gibbons and Katharine Lovvorn! Congratulations to the first and second place winners. Obviously, these are two brilliant ladies! For the answers to the etymologically challenging questions, watch for August Fuller's article in the upcoming Periscope.
