Here was the challenge:


Mystery Cross Returns

As in our Online Contest #12, the object is to fill in the grid below with the letters below it, one letter per square, to form a set of related words—all of which are proper nouns—reading across and down. This time, as a solving aid, we’ve shaded the seven squares where the words intersect and listed the letters that go in those squares separately. The longest answer reading down (the eight-letter word on the right) is the answer to the contest.
