An obituary in Sunday's editions for Lois Lilly Jones incorrectly reported her birthplace. She was born in Baltimore. Also, the article should have mentioned that three days before Jones died on Thursday at age 81, she was awarded the Calvert Medal for her devotion to Maryland history, including an essay contest and scholarship she started 25 years ago. She was given the award at Maryland Day festivities by Edward C. Papenfuse, the Maryland state archivist, on behalf of the Friends of the Maryland State Archives.
