History of the Pumpkin:
(excerpt from The Cornell Chronicle, Oct. 4, 2017)
On the brisk autumn morning of Wednesday, Oct. 8, 1997, Cornell students, faculty and staff strolling by McGraw Tower noted an unusual sight: a large pumpkin impaled on the spire 173 feet up.
For 158 days, the pumpkin sat atop McGraw Tower through fall, a harsh winter and into the spring. Cornellians asked two questions: Whodunit? Is it real?
