We prove that if the Vietoris hyperspace CL(X) of all nonempty closed subsets of a space X is Baire, then all finite powers of X must be Baire spaces. In particular, there exists a metrizable Baire space whose Vietoris hyperspace CL(X) is not Baire. This settles an open problem of R. A. McCoy stated in 1975.
