Time Capsule

Edna Johnson Littlewood '51

Edna Johnson Littlewood ’51 was walking along the hallways of Sheldon Hall
during Reunion in June and she saw a familiar face looking back at her — her own! Edna found a framed picture of the Class of 1951 time capsule being buried in front of Sheldon Hall and she was pictured with those present for the ceremony. Edna joked that the time
capsule didn’t contain any buried treasure. “There were no gold bricks buried there,” she said with a laugh. Indeed, the capsule was unearthed for the class’s 50th anniversary in 2001. Herb VanSchaack ’51 joined the late Marion Green ’99, a library clerk with Special Collections, who created a display of the
barrel’s contents, including such memorabilia as student ID cards, exam blue books, a Clio beanie and a little chalkware dog.

No. 106 – Greek Life

Sig Gamma guys at Reunion 2010

Oswego is often billed as one big family — and you can’t have a family without brothers and sisters.

Greeks have been a part of student life at Oswego since the 1920s, when Ransom Libby and Max Ziel founded Psi Phi Gamma, Oswego’s first fraternity, and Clio was established as the college’s first sorority.
