1965 Matheson Hall time capsule opened

Today Drexel's Business Librarian, Emily Missner, and I were present at the opening of the recently discovered Matheson Hall time capsule, making sure that the contents of the capsule were appropriately preserved.  Fortunately, contents were in excellent condition, preserved inside a sealed lead box.

 

In case you're wondering what was inside the time capsule, here's an inventory:

  • Brochure: Answers to your questions about Drexel and the Drexel Plan of Cooperative Education
  • Drexel Institute of Technology Bulletin: Undergraduate Curricula 1965-66
  • Drexel Institute of Technology Blue Book (blank examination book)
  • The Drexel Triangle, April 23, 1965
  • The Ledger: The Quarterly Journal of the Undergraduate College of Business Administration, 1963-54 (three issues)
  • Bus Ad Day card (Business Administration Day), circa 1965
  • Mitchell, Robert B. and Stanley B. Tunick. Prentice Hall 1964 Federal Tax Course, Students Edition
  • Two cigarette butts with the following names written in ink: W. Martin, E. Martin, Macauley, S. Smith, Carlo, Barry, Lucke, Halpin, McNamara, Mueller
