Project: Dayton Public Schools Time Capsules
The Time Capsule Project arose out of the ashes of the demolition program of Dayton Public Schools to make way for the new schools construction project. Time Capsules were usually found behind or within a hollowed out building date stones and where placed inside. The container was made from copper and welded at the corners to seal it, making it air tight. Vtechgraphics was to save all contents and digitally archive the contents to disk and storage in acid free archival sleeves and boxes. The contents consisted of: books, journals, maps, newspaper’s, photographs and objects dating from the late 1800-1975  To preserve and help save this history was a daunting task and continues today with the additional history databases created to make this information available for researchers and the public. Great credit must go to Dayton Public Schools for wisdom in realizing the need to save our local school history.
