Time capsule unveils glimpse of Shenango campus’ history

It was 45 years ago this past fall that a copper-clad time capsule containing contemporary papers and items was placed in the then-new science building, which was being erected on Penn State's Shenango Valley campus. David Goldberg, then-president of the Penn State Shenango Valley Advisory Board, placed the time capsule in the cornerstone of the science building. On March 28, Campus Director Jo Anne Carrick extracted this same time capsule from the campus’ science building as members of the Student Government Association and Penn State Shenango Advisory Board looked on.
