Finding the Lost Time Capsule

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – On February 28th, 1957, at the dedication ceremony for the new University of Utah Olpin Union Building, a time capsule was sealed and hidden somewhere in the building. But the opening of the copper box 50 years later as intended almost didn't happen. Last spring, university officials discovered no one had a clue as to where it was. So the 7-month search was on. KUER's Jenny Brundin reports.
