Sadly, there was no canned tuna-in-oil included among the artifacts from the 1959 Mooresville High School (MHS) time capsule, which was opened at last night's Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation (MCSC) board meeting. We have some nice photos on our "treasure trove" local history blog, thanks to Susan Haynes, MCSC chief communications officer.

What was inside the time capsule, if not canned tuna-in-oil?
- Several editions of the Mooresville Times and the Indianapolis newspapers from the time period;
- The 1959 MHS building dedication brochure;
- A feasibility study for consolidating the schools of Mooresville and Brown/Madison/Harrison Townships (of Morgan County);
- A photo of the MHS gymnasium under construction; and
- A typed copy of the original MHS Articles of Incorporation from the 19th century.
Lots of interesting historical finds, to be sure! Still, I'd have enjoyed that canned tuna-in-oil. Maybe next time.
