Time Capsule II Preserves Technical Journal Articles

Three articles from BTL's Technical Journal will be preserved for the people of 6939 A.D. in the Westinghouse Time Capsule II. The articles are "Automatic Switching for Nationwide Telephone Service" by A. B. Clark and H. S. Osborne; "Nationwide Numbering Plan" by W. H. Nunn, both from the September, 1952 issue, and "The TD-2 Microwave Radio Relay System" by A. A. Roetken, K. D. Smith and R. W. Friis, from the October, 1951 Technical Journal.

Time Capsule II will contain a panorama of current human activity. Its purpose is to supplement the original time capsule buried at the first New York World's Fair in 1938.

The new capsule is to be buried alongside the first one at the Westinghouse World's Fair Pavilion at the end of the 1965 season.

Bell Labs scientists W. H. Brattain and C. E. Shannon will have works included in the capsule's microfilm records as will J. Bardeen, a former BTL scientist.

'The Transistor, A Semi-Conductor Triode," by J. Bardeen and W. H. Brattain; and "Mathematical Theory of Communications," by C. E. Shannon and W. Weaver, will be the works included.

The Time Capsule contents were chosen by a 14-man selections committee headed by Dr. Leonard Carmichael, a vice president of the National Geographic Society.

Replicas of all objects to be buried in the capsule are on display now at the Westinghouse Pavilion at the Fair.

The Westinghouse Time Capsules

                     
            "I believe that
            man will not merely endure:
            he will prevail."
            William Faulkner
            
            Poised against the Long Island sky, high above an open air 
            pavilion is suspended a slim metal tube -- shining proof that man 
            endures and indeed prevails.

             Positioned there is a silvery duplicate of the Westinghouse 
            Time Capsule of the 1965-65 New York World's Fair.  The torpedo-shaped 
            capsule will carry a message 50 centuries into the future heralding 
            man's unprecedented progress during the past 25 years.

             Visitors passing through the pavilion pause at exhibits and 
            wonder what they would select for this incredible journey.  What best 
            records the follies and fortunes of our times?

             "The formation of the United Nations," offers a 
            well-dressed housewife from Ohio.
             "A filmed record of World War II," candidly remarks a 
            gray-haired lumber dealer from Maine.
             "A Beatles record," quips a sunburned teen-ager from 
            California.

             Off-hand remarks like these typify the myriad opinions that 
            Fair visitors register as they parade through the Westinghouse Electric 
            Corporation pavilion.  And centered above them, spurring imaginations, 
            is the Time Capsule, dramatically suspended 50 feet in the air from 
            three 100-foot pylons.  At the conclusion of the Fair, the Time Capsule 
            will be buried on October 16, 1965 beneath the site, to be unearthed 
            5000 years from now.  Like its sister entombed 10 feet away -- the famed 
            Westinghouse Time Capsule of the 1939-40 New York World's Fair -- Time 
            Capsule II will bring up to date the chronicle of the "history, faiths, 
            arts, sciences and customs" of our civilization.

             If Time Capsule II represents many things to many people 
            today, imagine what those excavators in 6939 A.D. will think when they 
            discover our metal shells and this legacy we have left behind.

             Travelers to the Westinghouse pavilion record their names 
            for reproduction on special miniaturized microfilm that will be slipped 
            into Time Capsule II before it is sealed, thus preserving a genealogical 
            record for descendents 150 generations from now.  But names are 
            secondary; what should we leave that best mirrors the progress of those 
            remarkable years since the days of the Trylon and Perisphere?
            
            From Dawn to Now...The Task Begins

            That question faced Westinghouse a quarter of a century ago 
            as it embarked on the historic first Time Capsule project.

             Let us go back to 1938 and the Westinghouse Time Capsule I.  
            Begin first by selecting a jury.  Their task:  Select the legacy.

             Wading through piles of suggestions the committee assembled 
            a varied collection of historical material that would effectively 
            document our civilization as it was in 1938.  Archeologists in that 
            unimagined future may be puzzled by what they uncover but in 1938 this 
            material reflected civilization as it paused briefly at a world's fair 
            in New York City.
            
            A Woman's Hat and a Slide Rule

            Tourists to the Fair today are amused by some of the 
            articles on display in one of the three exhibit areas at the 
            Westinghouse pavilion.  Twenty-five years of accelerated living suggest 
            the inevitable..."Is that how we were then?"

             How we were "then" is represented by dozens of articles of 
            common use ranging from a woman's hat to an engineer's slide rule but 
            not excluding a safety pin, a can opener, and a toothbrush.  Also on 
            exhibit is a listing of 75 examples of such representative materials as 
            fabrics, metals, plastics and a variety of seeds.  Into Time Capsule I 
            went these materials along with 35 articles of common use.  Also 
            encapsulated were brief messages addressed to the future from scholars 
            like Dr. Einstein, physicist and creator of the Theory of Relativity, 
            whose equation E=mc2 was to mean so much in the ensuing years.

            
            "See What We Did"
            To cram as much material as possible into Time Capsule I the 
            pages of books, magazines, newspapers, circulars, catalogs and pictures 
            were reproduced on three and a half reels of microfilm.  And the 
            committee foresightedly added a small viewer for reading the microfilm 
            was added along with instructions for making a projector.  A newsreel 
            was added to show historic and characteristic scenes of the time -- an 
            address by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a Miami fashion show.
            
            And Only 25 Years Later...
            The advent of another World's Fair and the rush of events 
            since 1939 launched Time Capsule II.  In a quarter of a century, man 
            split the atom, danced the twist, ran the four-minute mile, scaled Mt. 
            Everest, fought another World War and began to probe space and the seas.

             Dr. Leonard Carmichael, retired secretary of the 
            Smithsonian Institution and distinguished chairman of the Time Capsule 
            II Selections Committee, described the committee's function as "to make 
            selections to bring the 1938 Time Capsule up to date, and to aid peoples 
            5000 years from now in understanding our present civilization and the 
            rapid pace of progress that we have been experiencing."

             The encyclopedic chore of selecting contents for the second 
            Time Capsule fell to a blue-ribbon panel of 14 Americans whose 
            credentials are as impressive as their assignment:
            
            Dr. Detlev W. Bronk, President, The Rockefeller Institute, 
            and past President, The National Academy of Sciences
            
            Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, Under Secretary, United Nations, and 
            recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
            
            Dr. Vannevar Bush, Honorary Chairman, Massachusetts 
            Institute of Technology Corporation, and former President, Carnegie 
            Institution of Washington
            
            Dr. James B. Conant, former U. S. Ambassador and former 
            President, Harvard University
            
            Dr. Watson Davis, Director, Science Service
            
            Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, Deputy Administrator, National 
            Aeronautics and Space Administration
            
            Dr. John Kieran, Writer and Naturalist
            
            Dr. Henry Allen Moe, President, American Philosophical 
            Society
            
            Dr. Eugene Ormandy, Music Director, Philadelphia Orchestra
            
            Dr. Alfred Newton Richards, Pharmacologist, past President, 
            National Academy of Sciences
            
            Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg, Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission, 
            and winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry
            
            Dr. William E. Shoupp, Vice President, Research, 
            Westinghouse Electric Corporation
            
            Mr. Andrew Wyeth, Artist
            
             Assisted by four advisory subcommittees in Europe, Far 
            East-Oceania, Latin America and Africa-Middle East, the committee's 
            selections will be on cycloramic display at the Westinghouse pavilion 
            during the second season of the Fair.  Members of the committee are 
            authorities in such fields as atomic energy, arts and entertainment, 
            commerce and industry, communications, education, the humanities, how we 
            live, medicine and health, science, space, sports and recreation and 
            world events.
             As the committee began its quest, Westinghouse found itself 
            traversing familiar terrain and matching new technology to solve an old 
            question -- can the capsules last for 5000 years?

             Westinghouse Research Laboratories in Pittsburgh found the 
            answer in a new super alloy called Kromarc.  Exhaustive chemical testing 
            said this new stainless steel would be an excellent jacket for Time 
            Capsule II because of its ability to resist corrosion.

             Soil samples from 50 feet below ground at the Fair site in 
            Flushing Meadow Park revealed that the Long Island soil is almost 
            completely lacking in chloride ions, a major cause of metal corrosion.  
            Reports Dr. F. P. Byrne, manager of the company's Research Laboratories' 
            analytical chemistry section:  "We have concluded that there is little 
            possibility of severe corrosion of the Kromarc capsule by soil of such 
            analysis."
            
            The Messengers

            The two capsules bear many similarities.  Time Capsule I was 
            made from a Westinghouse developed metal called Cupaloy, a copper, 
            chromium and silver alloy tempered to the hardness of steel.  Time 
            Capsule I was cast in seven sections while the second Time Capsule is 
            constructed in three parts.  The center section was cast by the U. S. 
            Pipe & Foundry Company of Burlington, N. J.  The two bullet-shaped end 
            pieces were cast separately by Esco Corporation of Portland, Ore.

            As with the original capsule, the contents of Time Capsule 
            II will be sealed inside an air-tight glass envelope.  Air within the 
            envelope will be evacuated and replaced by an inert gas that will 
            prevent the contents from deteriorating.  The metal capsule will then be 
            sealed.  Protection of the contents will be insured in much the same way 
            as was Time Capsule I.  In the case of Time Capsule I, the U. S. Bureau 
            of Standards examined all the materials for durability.  Care was taken 
            not to include any objects which might produce fumes or acids capable of 
            attacking other articles.  All liquids were ruled out and organic 
            objects such as seeds were hermetically sealed in glass receptacles.  
            Film was placed in aluminum containers and other objects were 
            individually wrapped in heavy rag paper and tied with linen twine.

             When the packing of the inner envelope or glass was 
            completed, the air inside was exhausted, replaced with nitrogen, and 
            enough moisture injected to equal the humidity found in an ordinary 
            room.  Then the glass envelope was heated and sealed.  Finally, the 
            inner envelope of glass was placed in the metal shell, and the cap of 
            the capsule was secured to form an airtight seal.

             Time Capsule II will be finally laid to rest on October 16 
            -- designated Time Capsule Day at the Fair.  The 300-pound tube will be 
            provided the same survival insurance as its predecessor.  Lowered in 
            place, the seven foot, six inch capsule will be coated with pitch, 
            surrounded by concrete poured down a shaft and left secure beside its 
            sister capsule.
            
            Permanent Sentinel

            Above the spot where the Westinghouse Time Capsules rest, a 
            granite monument will stand as a permanent sentinel.  This memorial, 
            produced by The Rock of Ages Corporation, says:
            
            The Time Capsules
            Deposited
            September 23, 1938
            And
            October 16, 1965
            By The
            Westinghouse Electric Corporation
            As A Record Of
            Twentieth Century Civilization
            To Endure For 5,000 Years
            
            A Monastery in Tibet, A Library in Manhattan

            How will the capsules be found?

             Some day 5000 years hence in a monastery in Tibet, or 
            perhaps in a library in Manhattan, a book will provide the key.  The 
            "Book of Record," printed in 1938 on permanent paper with special ink, 
            describes in exact terms the latitude and longitude of the burying place 
            of the capsules.  Some 3,000 copies of the "Book of Record" are in 
            libraries, museums, monasteries and other safe repositories around the 
            world.  A supplement to the "Book of Record," announcing Time Capsule 
            II, will be mailed to these same locations.

             In a message addressed to posterity, the book requests that 
            its contents be translated into new languages as they supersede the old.  
            Instructions for making and using instruments to locate the capsules 
            electromagnetically are included in the "Book of Record."  It also 
            contains an ingenious key to the English language to aid archaeologists 
            of the future should knowledge of our present language be lost.

            
            And Ahead?
            And what of the years to come?  A cure for cancer?  Weekend 
            trips to the moon?

             No matter to what great heights we ascend or to what great 
            depths we descend, we of the Twentieth Century bequeath to the 
            Seventieth Century proof that man not only endures, but he also 
            prevails.
            
            
            
            You can be sure if it's Westinghouse

The Westinghouse Time Capsules

                     
            "I believe that
            man will not merely endure:
            he will prevail."
            William Faulkner
            
            Poised against the Long Island sky, high above an open air 
            pavilion is suspended a slim metal tube -- shining proof that man 
            endures and indeed prevails.

             How we were "then" is represented by dozens of articles of 
            common use ranging from a woman's hat to an engineer's slide rule but 
            not excluding a safety pin, a can opener, and a toothbrush.  Also on 
            exhibit is a listing of 75 examples of such representative materials as 
            fabrics, metals, plastics and a variety of seeds.  Into Time Capsule I 
            went these materials along with 35 articles of common use.  Also 
            encapsulated were brief messages addressed to the future from scholars 
            like Dr. Einstein, physicist and creator of the Theory of Relativity, 
            whose equation E=mc2 was to mean so much in the ensuing years.

            
            "See What We Did"
            To cram as much material as possible into Time Capsule I the 
            pages of books, magazines, newspapers, circulars, catalogs and pictures 
            were reproduced on three and a half reels of microfilm.  And the 
            committee foresightedly added a small viewer for reading the microfilm 
            was added along with instructions for making a projector.  A newsreel 
            was added to show historic and characteristic scenes of the time -- an 
            address by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a Miami fashion show.
            
            And Only 25 Years Later...
            The advent of another World's Fair and the rush of events 
            since 1939 launched Time Capsule II.  In a quarter of a century, man 
            split the atom, danced the twist, ran the four-minute mile, scaled Mt. 
            Everest, fought another World War and began to probe space and the seas.

             Dr. Leonard Carmichael, retired secretary of the 
            Smithsonian Institution and distinguished chairman of the Time Capsule 
            II Selections Committee, described the committee's function as "to make 
            selections to bring the 1938 Time Capsule up to date, and to aid peoples 
            5000 years from now in understanding our present civilization and the 
            rapid pace of progress that we have been experiencing."

             The encyclopedic chore of selecting contents for the second 
            Time Capsule fell to a blue-ribbon panel of 14 Americans whose 
            credentials are as impressive as their assignment:
            
            Dr. Detlev W. Bronk, President, The Rockefeller Institute, 
            and past President, The National Academy of Sciences
            
            Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, Under Secretary, United Nations, and 
            recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
            
            Dr. Vannevar Bush, Honorary Chairman, Massachusetts 
            Institute of Technology Corporation, and former President, Carnegie 
            Institution of Washington
            
            Dr. James B. Conant, former U. S. Ambassador and former 
            President, Harvard University
            
            Dr. Watson Davis, Director, Science Service
            
            Dr. Hugh L. Dryden, Deputy Administrator, National 
            Aeronautics and Space Administration
            
            Dr. John Kieran, Writer and Naturalist
            
            Dr. Henry Allen Moe, President, American Philosophical 
            Society
            
            Dr. Eugene Ormandy, Music Director, Philadelphia Orchestra
            
            Dr. Alfred Newton Richards, Pharmacologist, past President, 
            National Academy of Sciences
            
            Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg, Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission, 
            and winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry
            
            Dr. William E. Shoupp, Vice President, Research, 
            Westinghouse Electric Corporation
            
            Mr. Andrew Wyeth, Artist
            
             Assisted by four advisory subcommittees in Europe, Far 
            East-Oceania, Latin America and Africa-Middle East, the committee's 
            selections will be on cycloramic display at the Westinghouse pavilion 
            during the second season of the Fair.  Members of the committee are 
            authorities in such fields as atomic energy, arts and entertainment, 
            commerce and industry, communications, education, the humanities, how we 
            live, medicine and health, science, space, sports and recreation and 
            world events.
             As the committee began its quest, Westinghouse found itself 
            traversing familiar terrain and matching new technology to solve an old 
            question -- can the capsules last for 5000 years?

             Westinghouse Research Laboratories in Pittsburgh found the 
            answer in a new super alloy called Kromarc.  Exhaustive chemical testing 
            said this new stainless steel would be an excellent jacket for Time 
            Capsule II because of its ability to resist corrosion.

             Soil samples from 50 feet below ground at the Fair site in 
            Flushing Meadow Park revealed that the Long Island soil is almost 
            completely lacking in chloride ions, a major cause of metal corrosion.  
            Reports Dr. F. P. Byrne, manager of the company's Research Laboratories' 
            analytical chemistry section:  "We have concluded that there is little 
            possibility of severe corrosion of the Kromarc capsule by soil of such 
            analysis."
            
            The Messengers

            The two capsules bear many similarities.  Time Capsule I was 
            made from a Westinghouse developed metal called Cupaloy, a copper, 
            chromium and silver alloy tempered to the hardness of steel.  Time 
            Capsule I was cast in seven sections while the second Time Capsule is 
            constructed in three parts.  The center section was cast by the U. S. 
            Pipe & Foundry Company of Burlington, N. J.  The two bullet-shaped end 
            pieces were cast separately by Esco Corporation of Portland, Ore.

            As with the original capsule, the contents of Time Capsule 
            II will be sealed inside an air-tight glass envelope.  Air within the 
            envelope will be evacuated and replaced by an inert gas that will 
            prevent the contents from deteriorating.  The metal capsule will then be 
            sealed.  Protection of the contents will be insured in much the same way 
            as was Time Capsule I.  In the case of Time Capsule I, the U. S. Bureau 
            of Standards examined all the materials for durability.  Care was taken 
            not to include any objects which might produce fumes or acids capable of 
            attacking other articles.  All liquids were ruled out and organic 
            objects such as seeds were hermetically sealed in glass receptacles.  
            Film was placed in aluminum containers and other objects were 
            individually wrapped in heavy rag paper and tied with linen twine.

             When the packing of the inner envelope or glass was 
            completed, the air inside was exhausted, replaced with nitrogen, and 
            enough moisture injected to equal the humidity found in an ordinary 
            room.  Then the glass envelope was heated and sealed.  Finally, the 
            inner envelope of glass was placed in the metal shell, and the cap of 
            the capsule was secured to form an airtight seal.

             Time Capsule II will be finally laid to rest on October 16 
            -- designated Time Capsule Day at the Fair.  The 300-pound tube will be 
            provided the same survival insurance as its predecessor.  Lowered in 
            place, the seven foot, six inch capsule will be coated with pitch, 
            surrounded by concrete poured down a shaft and left secure beside its 
            sister capsule.
            
            Permanent Sentinel

            Above the spot where the Westinghouse Time Capsules rest, a 
            granite monument will stand as a permanent sentinel.  This memorial, 
            produced by The Rock of Ages Corporation, says:
            
            The Time Capsules
            Deposited
            September 23, 1938
            And
            October 16, 1965
            By The
            Westinghouse Electric Corporation
            As A Record Of
            Twentieth Century Civilization
            To Endure For 5,000 Years
            
            A Monastery in Tibet, A Library in Manhattan

            How will the capsules be found?

             Some day 5000 years hence in a monastery in Tibet, or 
            perhaps in a library in Manhattan, a book will provide the key.  The 
            "Book of Record," printed in 1938 on permanent paper with special ink, 
            describes in exact terms the latitude and longitude of the burying place 
            of the capsules.  Some 3,000 copies of the "Book of Record" are in 
            libraries, museums, monasteries and other safe repositories around the 
            world.  A supplement to the "Book of Record," announcing Time Capsule 
            II, will be mailed to these same locations.

             In a message addressed to posterity, the book requests that 
            its contents be translated into new languages as they supersede the old.  
            Instructions for making and using instruments to locate the capsules 
            electromagnetically are included in the "Book of Record."  It also 
            contains an ingenious key to the English language to aid archaeologists 
            of the future should knowledge of our present language be lost.

            
            And Ahead?
            And what of the years to come?  A cure for cancer?  Weekend 
            trips to the moon?

             No matter to what great heights we ascend or to what great 
            depths we descend, we of the Twentieth Century bequeath to the 
            Seventieth Century proof that man not only endures, but he also 
            prevails.
            
            
            
            You can be sure if it's Westinghouse
