Tropical storm Matthew blew through campus in October, downing trees and dousing lights. One tree fell across Boatwright Drive, taking down one of the University’s brick pillars at the intersection.

During the cleanup, facilities employees discovered a tin box in the base of the pillar. The box was rusted, but they were able to pry it open. Inside they found a cache of calling cards belonging to women from the Westhampton senior class of 1923.

We don’t know why or how the cards ended up in the pillar. But we’re left wondering what other secret stashes are out there, waiting to be found.
