BGSU Trivia Quiz #9 - Answers

BGSU Trivia was created for the 75th Anniversary of Bowling Green State University in 1985.

To mark the Centennial celebration of the University, the Center for Archival Collections will present a quiz each month, featuring two questions from each of the categories. An interactive version is also available.  Test your knowledge and have fun!
