(via Cornell News) 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? Nobody knew.
