Dr. Frederick Raymond Czarra of St. Mary’s, Maryland died Monday, June 29, 2020. He was 83. The only son of Raymond Sigmund and Katherine “Kitty” Josephine Czarra, he was born in Washington, DC on December 19, 1937. Educated at Mount Saint Joseph High School, a preparatory school in Baltimore, MD. Dr Czarra attended Mount St. Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, Maryland and received his Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Scranton. Later, he attained his Ph. D. at George Washington University.

His first teaching job was at Chopticon High School where he also coached track. Later he taught at Bowie State College. He served as Supervisor of Social Studies for the Howard County Public School System for many years before opening a Global Education Consultancy Business and advising as a Director for the Council of Chief State School Offices in Washington, DC from 1984-2004. After retiring, he continued to teach geography at St. Mary’s College.

He was widely published in the field of education, authoring many educational papers, guides, and texts. He also penned Spices: A Global History (Reaktion Books, 2012) and contributed to The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink (Oxford University Press, 2009).

Maps, travel, and history were his passions, marrying his vocation with his avocation. His work took him across the county and around the globe, from the halls of Oxford, England to Tokyo, Japan. Later in life, he was happiest being at and near St. Mary’s River, where he spent most of his life, at his parents beloved home, “Terra Maria”.

Dr. Czarra is survived by his wife Betty Czarra, his children Kerstin, Mark, Christopher, and Karen, son-in-law Douglas Wright, grandchildren Nicholas, Julia and Rosemary Wright, and Stepson Jason Mills.
A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

My first meeting with Fred was in my early twenties on a double date. I remember what a kind,considerate person he was with a good sense of humor, a rarity in that age group. Later on in life i would see him from time to time at the Shop at Farthring's when Betty worked there. He was truly one of the "good guys" and will be remembered fondly by many. My most sincere sympathy to you Betty and the family. Becky MacDonald
