Here is the link to the questions and answers for the pictures I asked help about along with the list of schools associated with the mystery coat of arms pictures: www.dropbox.com/s/lbzi8neuyliiyre/Unknown-2019-answers.docx?dl=0<https://www.dropbox.com/s/lbzi8neuyliiyre/Unknown-2019-answers.docx?dl=0>
I would like to thank Sue Watkins, T.F. Mills, Anton Sherwood and Kelly Hunt for responding with ideas about researching School coat of arms.
I would also like to extend a special thank you to Andy Stewart for reviewing a book for me at the University of Maryland library.
We finished third out of 47 teams. Pretty good but still room for improvement next year.

Each year about this time I post a request for help identifying some pictures. Once again, my team is participating in this for-fun trivia contest and could use some help. We finished second last year, maybe you can help us take first this year. This event is put on by a college radio station in Minnesota where first prize is simply a grab-bag of prizes, a traveling trophy and bragging rights.
When a team registers for this contest they receive a packet of pictures to identify. There will be a question asked during the 50-hour contest regarding each picture. This is just a small part of the bigger contest, but can make a difference in where we rank among the 50+ teams.
** Please, Please, Please: Email only me if you think you have an answer so that other teams can't Google and find it in the Wombat archives. **
I will let everyone know what the answers are after the contest is over in a couple weeks and give credit to those who helped me out.
Here is a link to some of the pictures: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kv4jbspymbppien/01-unknown.jpg?dl=0
This was a page of 18 partial pictures from Coat of Arms for educational organizations like colleges and universities. We've identified all but these remaining six. Some of the pictures have been photo-shopped or are part of a bigger picture, but that's the way we received them. We've already run the photos through various image search programs, so these remaining photos are more likely to come from a online database or book, magazine, etc...
Any thoughts people would like to share would be greatly appreciated.
Never know, you might be surprised to discover one of these pictures came from your local area or your alma mater.
Thanks in advance for any help people can provide,
