Baker Library Elm

This Red elm tree (Ulmus rubra) grew between the Baker Library and Morgan Hall for over 60 years. 

The Harvard Business School was established in March 1908 as the Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration. A $1,000 gift provided the initial funds to acquire a small library collection.  A few years later, George F. Baker donated additional funds to build the entire campus.

 The Baker Library was then dedicated in 1927 and is now the largest business library in the world.  The library contains over 600,000 volumes focusing on business literature from the last 7 centuries.
