The Harvey Community gathered at Morning Meeting on September 18 to fill the Harvey Centennial Time Capsule with memorabilia to mark the 100th year anniversary of The Harvey School (1916-2016). Students and faculty participated in contributing items to the capsule which will be buried next to the location of the 75th year Time Capsule, in front of Carter Hall.
The 75th year Time Capsule, buried in 1992, was unearthed for examination, and the contents were miraculously well preserved despite a good amount of water damage. It revealed some interesting perspectives from the students in 1991-92. Peter Moore '95, the winner of the 75th Anniversary Essay Contest, had some amusing predictions for the future at Harvey. While he correctly envisioned a future that relies heavily on technology and computers, we are happy to report that the faculty at Harvey is still "human" (not robots), and we still use our feet to walk to classes, rather than "Disappear/Reappear capsule devices."
We also took a moment to recognize members of our faculty and staff with 10 or more years of service, including Dianne Mahony and Bruce Osborne, both with over 30 years teaching at Harvey. Maybe the next time the Centennial Time Capsule sees the light of day, some of our current students will be teaching at Harvey alongside some of their favorite teachers.
