UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (WTAJ) — While renovating Penn State’s Willard Building for the new Bellisario Media Center, a construction crew uncovered a time capsule from 1949.
The crew, a part of J.C. Orr and son, found the lead box in the walls.
Take a look at these photos posted to the Penn State Facebook page.
Items include a commencement flyer from the 1949 graduation, and a “Daily Collegian” newspaper dated March 3, 1949.
There were also course guides for students, rate fees sheets, a copy of the speech from when the building was first dedicated, and of course, a lot of photos.
There are no university records that detail the existence of the time capsule.
