Who Knew WashU?

Question: Some of the most iconic pictures of fall on campus are taken in the Ginkgo Allée east of Olin Library. How old are the oldest trees among them?

Answer: D) The largest trees in this historic allée are about 100 years old, almost as old as some university buildings. Ginkgo Allée was part of the original campus plan designed by Cope & Stewardson in the early 1900s.

Congrats to this week’s winner, Kristen Jones, a staff member at the School of Medicine, who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
