Jove Graham '96 Wins on Jeopardy!
by Michael Lott
Jove Graham '96 became the new Jeopardy! champion last night, defeating the reigning 5-day champion. Graham's slight initial lead going into the Final Jeopardy round and his larger wager carried him to victory with winnings of $34,401. The Final Jeopardy clue, "His collection of books suffered disastrous fires at the home called Shadwell in 1770 & at the Library of Congress in 1851," was the answer to the question, "Who is [Thomas] Jefferson?" Both Graham and the previous champion answered correctly.
