Class of 1958 Time Capsule

On 29 May 2008, John Calabro, VP AOG, Jim Johnston, Joann Boone, AOG, Jack Downing '58 and his wife, Margie,  placed the time capsule in its place behind Herbert Hall.  The oxygen had been purged from the capsule with liquid nitrogen before sealing it.

The capsule is to be opened in 2058 when our Perpetual Endowment Fund makes its first donation to West Point and the class of 2008 returns for its 50th reunion.  At that time it is hoped that the class of 2058 will add some mementos and rebury the capsule until 2108.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Classes of 1958 and 2008 was signed in April 2017    Page 1  Page 2
