Wesleyan University: 67-Year-Old Time Capsule Discovered during PAC Renovation

Wesleyan University: 67-Year-Old Time Capsule Discovered during PAC Renovation. “The ongoing demolition of the 1954 wing of the Public Affairs Center (PAC) yielded a touch of history on Sept. 17 when crews unearthed a time capsule sealed into the concrete entry slab on the east side of the building. A demolition contractor found a partially damaged copper box that had been encased in concrete. The outside of the box was green and brown with oxidation and dirt, but the inside retained its original bright sheen and color. This particular contractor had seen time capsules on other building projects and knew what he was dealing with.”
