A time capsule underneath Disque Hall

Recently, the Archives was alerted to the discovery of a time capsule placed underneath Disque Hall at its dedication 47 years ago. Unfortunately, the capsule was discovered inadvertently during the construction of the new Perelman Plaza and was crushed. Water soaked the contents of the capsule, which included copies of the Triangle, the Bulletin (course catalog) and the Drexel Technical Journal, pictured below. Fortunately, copies of these items were already preserved in the University Archives.
