It has been about 50 years since the store opened.

“It was really hard to break into it,” Callahan said.

The crew had to be careful not to damage the contents.

“We didn’t use a cutting torch, or saw something like that,” Reisinger said.

In the vault, they found valuable documents detailing the origin of the school.

“Pacific University was the first university chartered by the State of California, and these are the original documents,” said Callahan.

The items found included a handwritten diary dating back to 1851 and other historical documents, including an 1862 diploma printed on animal skins.

Campus history is carefully preserved in the hope that it will be exhibited for everyone to see.
