Your Time Capsule

Hello, William -

In all likelihood, you have probably met us a few times in your life. When you were born, we gave you the time capsule you just opened. We are Lester Ward and Eva Swoboda (your dad was the best man in our wedding) .

The URL you used to get to this page was inserted into the time capsule so that we could give you some information about who and where we are now. By the time you reach this page, it will have been updated with our current whereabouts and status. And pictures. It is a little bland at the moment, though.

We didn't find out about your birth until a week or so after it happened, so we were unable to find an August 18 issue of the New York Times. We managed to get some magazines from your birth week, but some are from the week after.

Here is picture of us the way we looked around the time we gave you your capsule:

Happy birthday,
Eva and Les
