Media Advisory – Morris Library Time Capsule

Southern Illinois University Carbondale officials will "exhume" a long-forgotten time capsule from behind Morris Library's cornerstone at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28. Chancellor Walter V. Wendler, Provost and Vice Chancellor John M. Dunn and Library Affairs Dean David H. Carlson will make brief remarks prior to removing the cornerstone and examining the contents of 50-year-old time capsule. SIUC's former First Lady Dorothy Morris, widow of the late SIUC President Delyte Morris, will attend Wednesday's ceremony, which will take place at the front (north) entrance to the library. Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to cover the event.
