Movember at MdHS

It’s Movember, so here’s a contest!

As you may have heard November is Movember, which is national mustache month. The Movember Foundation seeks to raise awareness about prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives.

In honor of Movember and to help raise awareness here in the Fatti maschil, Parole femine (Manly deeds, Womanly words) state we tapped our collective hivemind to handpick the best ’staches from our collections. We even threw in a few of our own. Can you tell who’s who?

Try our Movember contest: The first four responses with the most correct answers could win one of the following items:

Maryland History in Prints, 1743-1900 by Laura Rice (a $75 value)

Gardiner’s Photographic Sketchbook of the Civil War (Dover, 1959, a $16.95 value)

DVD – Baltimore: a Modern City of Charm and Distinction (a $12 value)

A Family passes to visit MdHS (2 adults & up to 4 children, a $20 value)

Please email your responses to

In addition to this contest, which has rules (please see them below), MdHS library and Special Collections staff will also be taking up a collection for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Donations can be made at the H. Furlong Baldwin Library or here.

*MdHS employees, volunteers, interns, board and committee members are not eligible to win prizes. They are eligible to win bragging rights.
