On February 25, 1897, Julia Etchison (Mrs. John H. Hanna Jr.), who taught at
Frederick High School for 32 years, was a published author and a columnist
for The Frederick News-Post, was born.

On February 25, 1921, Charles B. Robinson, 16, was hanged at the Frederick
County Jail on West South Street in Frederick for the rape and murder of
Mary Edith Coblentz Hightman at her Middletown area farm on November 16,
1920. This was the next to last execution in Frederick County.

On February 25, 1990, President George H. W. Bush and German Chancellor
Helmut Kohl held a joint news conference at Camp Greentop near Thurmont
after two days of talks at Camp David, the presidential retreat, on a
unified Germany.
