struck Frederick, breaking windows and denting roofs.

West Church and North Court streets in Frederick.
On May 16, 1913, The Women's College of Frederick officially changed its
name to Hood College, just months after the death of Margaret Scholl Hood,
its primary benefactor, and in whose honor the change was made..

the first woman president of Hood College.
