About this collection

On December 3, 2019, a time capsule was opened to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the incorporation of Montgomery, Alabama. Sealed in 1969 as part of the city's sesquicentennial commemorations, the capsule contained magazines, newspapers, brochures and other materials from across the city; letters written by Montgomery residents to their descendants; and letters from then Alabama Governor Albert Brewer, Montgomery Mayor Earl James, and other city officials to their successors 50 years in the future. Samples of the contents are included in this collection.
