A CEREMONIAL TROWEL
Building Time & Life
A ceremonial trowel used in 1959 as the symbolic cornerstone was laid at the Time & Life Building, 1271 Avenue of the Americas, an event attended by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder of Time Inc., and other dignitaries. In the cornerstone is a time capsule that Bill Hooper, the company archivist, hopes can be extracted and opened on the magazine’s 100th anniversary in 2023.
