On September 23, 1941, a British mother abandoned her newborn baby behind blackberry bushes in Horsell Common, a 355-hectare park on the outskirts of London. Stationed in England, three Canadian soldiers (Gunner Robert C. Griffin of Regina, Saskatchewan, Lance Sergeant Ernest Curtis of Brandon Manitoba, and Gunner Alonzo J. Brackett of Terrace, British Columbia) happened to be nearby. The three members of the Royal Canadian Artillery heard a strange noise coming from the bushes and discovered the baby who was clinging to life. They immediately cut the remaining umbilical cord with a knife, and wrapped the little girl in a white shirt. An entry in the 8th Field Regiment's war diary from that day says: "found a newborn baby in the gun area". The baby girl was rushed to a nearby hospital, and survived. She was later adopted by an English couple, who named her Mary, and grew up in Hertfordshire. Mary, who is now 79 years old, only discovered this beautiful picture in 2018. "Tears were rolling down my face" said Mary, adding: "I owe my life to them". Her three guardian angels had already passed away, but in 2019, Mary found and got in touch with Harry Curtis, the son of Lance Sergeant Ernest Curtis.

THE CRYPT OF CIVILIZATION TIME CAPSULE AT OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY

… is the oldest millennial time capsule in conception and the largest in the world. In 1936, detailed plans were executed to build an extraordinary time capsule– one designed to store records for over 6,000 years, done on what could perhaps be described as an epic scale never before conceived. The visionary of this improbable quest was Oglethorpe University president Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, who has been called “the father of the modern time capsule.”

Jacobs was convinced that his generation could be the first to perform what he later called “our archaeological duty.” This was an obligation to provide for future historians a thorough and accurate record, scientifically selected and preserved, of life in the twentieth century.
