Gallaudet Time Capsule Found
Construction of a new building at Gallaudet University paused after workers discovered a time capsule buried in the walls of a building that went up in 1958. The hearing and speech facility was state-of-the-art at the time. In its place will go the James Lee Sorenson Language and Communication Center. The sealed copper box near the cornerstone contained 1958 issues of The Buff and Blue, the Gallaudet Record, the Gallaudet Alumni Bulletin and American Annals of the Deaf, articles about hearing and speech, an Audiology Department faculty and staff photo and a vintage hearing aid.
