Who Knew WashU?
Question: Which building was the first on what’s now known as the Danforth Campus?
Answer: B) The cornerstone for Busch Hall was laid in October 1900, the month before that of Brookings Hall. Named for donor Adolphus Busch, of Anheuser-Busch Brewing Co., the building originally was designed for chemistry. After being leased for use during the World’s Fair, Busch Hall opened for classes in 1905.
Congrats to this week’s winner, Rosetta Saputo, of Purchasing Services, who will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
